the LMC

The LMC is the largest of the satellite galaxies of the Milky Way. Its surface brightness is higher than that of our galaxy’s. The LMC hosts the most active starburst region known in the Local Group of galaxies, the Tarantula Nebula. I acquired 47×3 min, ISO 800 with a 50 mm f/1.8@f/4.5 on the Canon 1100D mod. During my visit to Namibia, the Magellanic Clouds’ position was the least favorable, thus the pictures aren’t the best. The orange hue on the raw image is due to the strong airglow we’ve encountered, there was no light pollution.
