Widefield Rho Complex

This beautiful, colourful region of sky is known as the Rho Ophiucus complex, and surrounds the red supergiant star Antares, in the constellation of Scorpius. Antares is the heart of the Scorpion. Also visible is dark nebulae where lanes of obscuring dust hide background stars, blue reflection nebulae where the dust is illuminated by nearby stars and red emission nebulae where the hot hydrogen gas itself is glowing. Captured over 2 hours with a Canon 6D, 5 mins subs at ISO800, Pentax 90mm lens.
