About this image

Remote imaging with iTelescopes T70 (Samyang 135mm lens)

LRGB image processed with Pixinsight and Lightroom.

If you can't get to the southern hemisphere then remote imaging usng iTelescopes is great. And they have a lot more clear skies. 

The Large Magellanic Cloud is a fascinating object with the enormous Tarantula Nebula.
