Description

My image of the Scorpius/Scorpion Constellation, especially in the Antares area. That is just one single frame, no stacking, only processing in Photoshop. As being only a single frame, the image, especially at 100%, is a bit noisy. Near Antares you can see a dim, barely visible hint of the Blue Horsehead Nebula, IC 4592. Taken from a Bortle Scale 3 or 4, VLM around 6.4; in MG, Brazil. Thanks for seeing.

Camera and Lens: Unmodded T4i; Canon 40mm STM, at f/3.5 and ISO 800.

Exposure Detail: SINGLE FRAME, 1x180" (or 3 minutes), ISO 800.
