My image of this beautiful naked eye galaxy of the southern sky. 23 light frames of 20 seconds. ISO 1600, lens at f/2.8. Temperature around 7-10ºC, Bortle Scale 3 or 4. There are many amazing objects to photograph in the Southern Sky, and most of you, can't see them from the Northern Hemisphere. Thanks for seeing.

Existem muitos objetos incríveis a se fotografar no Céu Austral, e a maioria de vocês, não consegue vê-los do Hemisfério Norte. Obrigado por ver.
