Re: January 2018 Astrophotography Contest

The spectacular Tarantula Nebula (NGC 2070) is an extremely luminous nebula situated in the Large Magellannic Cloud. At its core lies a compact star cluster approximately 35 light years in diameter. The estimated mass of the cluster is 450,000 solar masses, suggesting it will become a globular cluster in the future.

Re: January 2018 Astrophotography Contest

No offense intended, but I have learned soooo much from Doug. I know he has had some terrible things happen recently. I think we all can appreciate what he has given us here. (Sorry, you may her just been giving him shit)

On to another topic, Sean how do you get such a large image posted, I normally give up on the restriction of size.

Really, you may know Doug better, so I meant no offense. I just want to give the guy A LOT of credit.

Re: January 2018 Astrophotography Contest

No offense taken. I too have learned a lot here. Not picking on Doug at all. There are other moderators also, we have a couple great pics here and someone should get the poll going is all I am trying to say.
