Star Circle South Africa - LMC for Doug & Rudeviewer

Post by Andre » Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:46 am

Hi All

Jip the LMC it is ,this is one of my framing shots of 70 odd sec , not long enough for any detail but the LMC & SCM & NGC 104 = 47 Tucana are really prominent from this location and will always leave a smudge/smear on star trail images.
Thank you for the interest.

The LMC as you call it looks huge! I guess we have a few targets in the Northern Hemisphere you don't see. I really enjoy see images from the Southern Hemisphere!
Thank you Andre!
