Order Notes

Antares is the bright star in the upper left.  This gorgeous region is unusual for its variety and richness of color, which is primarily star light reflected off dust.  The dark areas to the right of center and the complex area below it are known as the “Rho Ophiuchi” region, that being the name of the star that illuminates it.  The globular cluster just below Antares is M4.

This is an LRGB image captured with a 200mm (FL) camera lens, so it is quite a large area.

Antares is part of the constellation Scorpius, although many other parts of this image are associated with the neighboring constellation, Ophiucus.  The image was captured in June of 2013 at Skyview Acres, near Goldendale, Washington.

About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
