Description

At evening in June the LMC drops quickly to the southern horizon, actually grazing it after midnight. Despite its low position it stood out in Binoculars, and I hoped to get a decent shot using a moderate focal length.

This is with one of Farieds 8" f/4 actually, and I used Optolong LRGB and HO filters on ASI1600MPro. Narrowband helped a lot to bring out the nebula against the star masses, and the full extent of nebulae are best featured on the starless Bicolor version.
