Coal Sack & Crux, the Southern Cross (Binocular view).jpg
The Southern Cross, Crux, and the Coal Sack, plus associated star clusters in and around Crux, such as the Jewel Box, NGC 4755. This is a stack of 5 x 3 minute exposures at f/2.8 and ISO 800 with Canon 5D MkII and 135mm Canon lens. This field simulated the field of view of binoculars. Taken from Atacama Lodge, Chile, May 2011. A couple of the frames had light cloud which added the star glows naturally (no filter employed here).
