Description

Large Magellanic Cloud is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, about 163 kilo-lightyears distant.

This was imaged with a DSLR of tripod with no tracking. Really don't have enough data here, but I only had a short time to image before the LMC fell behind a house. Really struggled to get the LMC to show up, I had to stretch quite a bit which brought out a lot of noise in the background.
