On my last day on La Palma I wanted to try to photograph the Corona Australis constellation with the dust clouds and reflection nebulae. The region is located on La Palma at only 20grad height. In addition, the Sahara dust and light Airglow disturbed.
Also had to trim the picture a bit.
This is now the most southern object I was able to include in my holiday.
Image editing was not easy.
A picture with the TAK-85 follows :)

An meinen letzten Tag auf La Palma wollte ich noch versuchen das Corona Australis Sternbild mit den Staubwolken und Reflexionsnebeln abzulichten. Die Region liegt auf La Palma bei nur 20grad Höhe. Zudem störte der Saharastaub und leichtes Airglow.
Musste auch das Bild etwas beschneiden.
Das ist dann nun das Südlichste Objekt welches ich in meinen Urlaub aufnehmen konnte.
Die Bildbearbeitung war nicht leicht.
Ein Bild mit dem TAK-85 und mehr Brennweite folgt :)
