Description

Here's a semi-widefield image of the Tarantula Nebula nestled within the Large Magellanic Cloud and it's associated Ha regions and star clusters. This data is from Telescope Live's Heavens Mirror Observatory in Australia, taken with their FSQ-106ED/FLI PL16803. I combined various One-Click Observations consisting of 8 subs each RGB @300s and 7 subs each of SHO @300s in Pixinsight.

Anyway, hope ya like it!

Tom
