Auriga is one of the richest regions in the winter sky, laying near the galactic equator.

It is rich of nebulas and clusters.

Unfortunately my old Leitz 180mm lens suffers of a severe chromatic aberration producing odd colors in stars.

Anyway I like this picture.

l'Auriga, trovandosi vicino l'equatore galattico, è una delle regioni più ricche del cielo invernale.

è riccissima di nebulose e ammassi.

Purtroppo il mio vecchio obiettivo 180 mm Leitz soffre di una grave aberrazione cromatica che produce strani aloni colorati intorno alle stelle.

Nonostante ciò mi piace questa immagine.
