Antares and Rho Ophiuchi

Antares and Rho Ophiuchi region with Canon xs, Canon 100mm f2.8 L and Optron sky tracker.

46 3minute exposures as iso 1600.

This is a very ambitious endeavor considering that this object barely gets to 20 degrees above the horizon this far north.

The cotton ball like stars are caused by low haze. I will redo this when we head down to Joshua Tree.
