Description

This is the stunning open cluster you find a little west of the Eta Carina nebula. In a binocular it is just amazing, and always reminds me of a Baby Tarantula spider that I once saw crawling through the grass. It moved in a so special way, the legs going rather slow but smooth and restless. Thus my personal denomination "the spider".

Canon Eos77da mod at Iso800 with 300L f/4 lens at f/4. Farm Rooisand, Namibia.
