Description

A picture of the beautiful constellation of Scorpius, taken from Aguas da Prata, SP, Brazil. Bortle 3/4, no moon, relatively good seeing.

Stacked with DSS, processed with PixInsight, no dithering nor drizzle.

The Sigma 12-24mm F5.6 lens proved to be quite capable of delivering relatively round stars for such a wide field.
