The Large Magellanic Cloud

Last night was the first clear Moonless night for a while, so I drove an hour Southwest of Brisbane and took some test shots of some of the larger deep sky objects to see how my 100mm macro lens performs for astrophotography.

The Large Magellanic Cloud is a satellite galaxy of our Milky Way, approximately 163000 light years away.

This image is 30 x 40 second exposures in a Star Adventurer Mini tracker, with the lens at f/4 and 3200 iso. Processed using DeepSkyStacker and Lightroom 5.
