 Antares & the Rho Ophiuchus Region

Copyright 2015

The colors and nebula in the region around Scorpio and Ophiuchi make this my favorite region of the night sky.  Due to its low declination in the sky it is also one of the most difficult regions to photograph.

This image is a two frame mosaic taken with an SBIG 8300 and Cannon 200mm Lens.
