CEDIC team goes Namibia - Part #10 Highlights in Sagittarius
Messier 23
„Highlights in Sagittarius“ is the topic of Part #10 of our image presentation, where we want to share the results from our astrophotography-trip to DeepSkySafaris in Namibia. The constellation Sagittarius offers such a wide range of interesting objects that you could spend many nights just looking at this constellation. On our trip we chose some of the great classics like the Lagoon Nebula Messier 8 or Messier 20 - a mixture of emission, reflection and dark nebula. Also the one or other open star cluster may not be missing and sometimes you should also look for something beside the known paths - then you will find treasures like NGC 6559.
