NGC2070, Tarantula Nebula (Ha LRGB) - Jaime Felipe Ramirez Narvaez

Posted by Stellarvue on 3rd Aug 2020

This week’s StellarShot comes from our friend down in Chile. This amazing image demonstrates just why the nebula is so named as it seems to crawl all over the frame. To Own the night, Jaime used his Stellarvue SVS130 refractor. We are proud to share his beautiful image with the Stellarvue family. Jaime has shared his images with us before and we hope he'll continue to share more.

The latest version of the SVS130 is now the SVSX130T which is identical to the original SVS130 but optics are now hand figured in our shop in Auburn to .98 Strehl or higher! These instruments are only available direct from Stellarvue. If you place an order now the telescope will be completed and ship in 30 - 60 days. For more information visit our SVSX130T web page at:
