Stellar Shot of the Week 06/01/2017

Posted by Stellarvue on 1st Jun 2017

Sagittarius Star Cloud by Bob Jais

Bob Jais captured this image of the Sagittarius Star Cloud (contains: IC 4715, M 18, NGC 6613, NGC 6603, IC 1284, NGC 6595, NGC 6590, NGC 6589) using his Stellarvue SV70T refractor, SFFR-70APO focal reducer/flattener, ZWO ASI 1600 MM-C camera and Astrodon LRGB filters on his Celestron CGE Pro mount.

Bob says, "Still fighting clouds...The ZWO ASI 1600 MM-C sure helps to get a high dynamic range with short exposures in between the clouds!"
