Description

My first image from the remote site in Chile.  I move a setup down to DeepSkyChile this past month and finally have it up and running.  Amazing dark sky site!.  This large nebula can be found in the Large Magellanic cloud, one of our closest galaxies.  It is low on the horizon by the south pole.
