From the center of our Milky Way Galaxy in Sagittarius through the constellations of Scorpius and Ophiuchus, this southern field of view contains an assemblage of some of the most colorful nebulae in the sky:
This image was captured with a Hutech modified Canon 6D using an 50mm f/1.8 Olympus Zuiko prime lens at f/4. The camera and lens were piggybacked on a Celestron C-8 guiding with a Lodestar autoguider using Phd Guiding. The image is made from 55 RGB subs of 600 sec @ ISO 200 (9+ hours) plus 47 subs of 600 sec @ ISO 1600 (8 hours) using an Astronomik 6nm Ha full frame clip filter (17 hours total exposure time).
Thanks for looking!
