NGC6726 Et al. - Nebulae in Corona Australis

We present herewith our latest astro image being of the very busy and complex star forming region in Corona Australis. We have just about everything in the field from a scattering of galaxies, a prominent globular cluster, reflection and emission nebula, Herbig-Haro objects and much brown dusty stuff.

Approximately 12 hours of exposures with the Tak TSA120 @ f5.6 and QSI683 ws8 camera.

Clear skies,
Rodney

Great image of a very interesting area. Love the colour rendition.



(I'm very jealous - I can't even get to my equipment because it is nicely tucked up out of reach due to Melbourne's lockdown.....)

Magnificent. The framing, composition, contrast, colour, depth, sharpness are all great.

Many thanks to all and yes we do enjoy our Tak scopes. Great investments and wonderful toys. Thanks for the video link Andy, that was most entertaining. And I do actually sit back and take in the image as well

Beautiful Image there Rodney. Great dust detail and beautiful rendition of the reflection nebulae.



But is it just me that sees this?

Excellent observation Markus, how did I not see this before I wonder?

Now if I could only 'unsee' it

Clear skies,
Rodney

Thanks Mike, yes I did sit back and admire this one for a while. I guess there is good reason that many are drawn to this area as it make for a spectacular setting.
