Description

I have been wanting to shoot this dramatic and dusty steller spectacle since first becoming interested in AP. I plan to add more data but thought I'd upload my provisional processing. NGC 6188 is an emission nebula almost 4000 light years from us. It is a star forming region with a number of hot young stars. NGC 6164 is the 'Egg', a  remnant of a star that went supernova ( Information from APOD 07/11/2018 )
