Description

Inspecting one of the many clouds inside the Small Magellan Cloud (SMC) a red super giant star, PMMR_146 was the perfect target to emphasize the hexagon shape of such cloud.

LRGB 12/6/6/6 minutes, Astrodon filters, and CHI-1 telescope (ASA 500N).

There is a nice description of all these small objects , very beautiful all of them searching for small structures inside the SMC.
