Mmmmm, NGC 6231...

The Scorpio OB Association, or the Table of Scorpio: What a grouping! 6 OCs & emission & dark nebulae, all within a couple of degrees! Makes me week at the knees! I've only "discovered" this tinderbox of stellar treasures recently!

If you can get hold of a really fast scope, like an 8" f/4, & an OIII filter, this area is "suck your eyeballs out of your head" stuff! It is such a detailed area.
