Description

Here's another image acquired by Telescope Live at NSW Australia. It's a compilation of One-Click Observations taken with an FSQ-106ED/FLI PL16803. So far, I've only obtained 6 each RGB @300s, so there's very little data (I was actually surprised I got this much out of that little data) and I was just playing around to see what would come out.

A couple of particulars. The Large Magellanic Cloud is an irregular dwarf galaxy which orbits The Milky Way and is a member of the Local Group at a distance of a mere 163,000 light-years. it's easily visible to the naked eye and is about 30,000 light-years across and covers an area of 20 full Moons in the night sky. There's a multitude of interesting objects contained in the LMC including many diffuse nebulae, planetary nebulae, globular and open clusters, and just about anything else you can think of. February 24th is the 34th anniversary of Supernova 1987A which occurred in the LMC and was the nearest one observed since Keplers, before the invention of the telescope.

Anyway, hope ya like it!

Tom
