Large Magellanic Cloud (135mm)

The LMC, Large Magellanic Cloud, taken with 135mm telephoto lens for a field of view similar to binoculars. Taken from Timor Cottage, Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia, Dec 5, 2012. This is a stack of 10 x 5 minute exposures, median combined (to eliminate some satellite trails) at f/2.8 with Canon L-series 135mm lens and the modified Canon 5D Mark II camera at ISO 800. Tracked on AP 400 equatorial mount.

  1. Once again Alan, thanks for the photo.
    I like the wide-field setting for the LMC.
    Also, excellent tracking, and sharp stars (great lens)!
