Description

This is the second instalment of the  (one day to be) mosaic of the LMC and should be number one if I didn't get the coordinates wrong, see: https://www.astrobin.com/y8zh1s/?nc=collection&nce=2703

As luck had it, seeing have been terrible on the night thus the low resolution of the image.
