Description

Here we present a close-up version of the Tarantula Nebula. Amazingly, this image was created from only 45 minutes of Ha data taken with the Apogee U9 and 16" RC, overlayed on the older widefield narrowband version that was taken with the SBIG STL11k and FSQ106. A link to widefield image can be found here.
