Wandering on Scorpion's Constellation.
I need a link to information about CR 316. I did not find it, yet.
I imaged more DSOs, but they are not well. I must try again.

Some nice views there Jorge. Thanks. All the best.

Thank you, Leste. I have intention to register all DSOs from that region. It is very rich with them.

Nice work Jorge, good set of images!

Thank you, Steve. It is my intention image all DSOs on Scorpion
I was just wondering why in M6 the red star has 6 spikes? Normally I only see 4 spikes. If spikes are produceed by light dispersion due to rods that hold the secondary mirror, what created the two others ?

Nice shots Jorge. I'm not sure if this will help or if it counts as information but this might help you track it down.

Love the simplicity of just doing clusters. Great work! :thumbsup:
Some of the images that you presented look a bit brown. Just a suggestion and I'm not sure if this is the problem, maybe try aligning the colour channels in Photoshop using the histogram as a guide.:)

Thank you very much, Paul. It was just what I needed. Short and objective.
"... a strong concentration toward the center ... moderately rich in stars (50-100 stars)" :thumbsup:

Glad to help. :cool2:

Thank you, TheDecepticon. You are right.
Some pictures have red-brown background due to light pollution on the site I have used. Still don't have filters.
Within 2 days I will be operating from the observatory that I build. This problem and the limitation on the total time of exposure will be overcome.
I believe that I will produce better and cleaner pictures.

Great pics Jorge.
NGC 6231 is one of my favorite open clusters. It is a great target to show first time viewers. 2 weeks ago when my club last met NGC 6231 got nearly as many wow's from first timers as Saturn did.
Your pictures certainly do those beautiful objects justice.

And a new imaging of M 4 . It seems to be better than the others oldest.
