July 4,5 and 6

Equipment:

APM 107/700 triplet with Riccardi 0.75 reducer, Fornax 51, Modified Nikon D600 and guided with Lacerta MGEN

Description:

This star cloud is a very interesting object, since it is not really a single object like a star cluster. Instead, it is a ‘hole’ in the dust of the Milky Way arm that allows us to see all the way to the Sagittarius arm. The stars in this cloud are just all the stars we can see in this direction in the line of sight. With the dark clouds, reflection nebulas and emission nebula this is a very interesting and colourful area
