About this blog

This is a place for me to post my paltry efforts in astrophotography, along with my musings about the craft and science. My apologies if the musings at times seem a bit incoherent. It is most likely due to a worrying low ratio of sleep-to-wakefulness. Cheers, Gary

The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC)

This is a wide field image of the Large Magellanic Cloud. NGC 2070 (The Tarantula Nebula) is clearly visible at centre right, an N11 (The Bean Nebula) is in the lower left corner. In fact, the LMC is chocka with what astronomers refer to as DSOs, or deep space objects. Almost any condensed knot of light has a designation in one or more astronomical catalogues. The central bar of the dwarf galaxy is clearly visible in this image. It is thought that some of the LMC's spiral arms were ripped off in
