Description

This here is again old data that I processed last year but was never happy with the outcome. Ive gone back for an entire overhaul starting from scratch and this was the result. Im quite surprised at the results with only 24 minutes worth of exposure time on this DSO.

Always wanted to capture this object as it awesome to think that its a nebula inside another galaxy (LMC - Satellite galaxy of our Milky Way)
