Description

Here is a first cut of the 900 second data.

This image includes two of the Southern Sky showpieces: the Small Magellanic Cloud (NGC292) on the left and 47 Tucanae (NGC104) in the upper right.  When I was in Chile recently, I found this to be my favorite sight through the Canon 10x42 Is binoculars.
