Tarantula Nebula NGC2070

Bright nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud, 160 kly away. A 135mm lens on a full Frame camera will frame the entire LMC and Trantula Nebula nicely making it a good subject to photograph using just a camera tracking mount and a medium length telephoto lens (Portrait Lens) The colour of the Trantula nebula will differ depending on which camera you are using - if you have a camera that blocks most of the HA light then it will be a greenish colour (HB)
