LMC - Large Magellanic Cloud

A satellite galaxy to the Milky Way, the Large Magellanic Cloud also contains the Tarantula Nebula, the bright blue area to the upper right. The Tarantula Nebula is so big and bright if it were as close as the Orion Nebula it would be visible during the day and take up half the sky.

60 minutes of data at 135mm from a bortle 2-3 site.
