Description

Larger Magellanic  Cloud from Backyard (Bortle 7) taken on Canon Ra and Canon 135mm prime lens, and MaxFR Astronomik 12nm Ha filter. This combines the Ha with earlier RGB image, with around 30 hours of data. A really interesting target for a short telephoto lens - there is a lot going on inside the LMC, especially around the Tarantula Nebula.

Comments and suggestions most welcome.
