Description

Tried to emphasize the dark dust lanes in this image, my first southern hemisphere galaxy! Images were taken from 2/26/2020 through 3/18/2020.

The fun part was navigating around and finding the dozens and dozens of tiny faint fuzzies all over the image. Really helps give a sense of scale...
