Description

The field is much larger than it appears on the image that I cropped to display most of the remarkable objects.

I photographed this area with my 70mm Tamron. At the processing, I included the images taken with other lens, and I reduced the opacity, in order to keep a certain homogeneity to the whole.

These images are as follows:

NGC 5139 Omega Centauri Globular Cluster :

NGC 5128 Centaurus A :

NGC 4945 The Silver Road Galaxy :
