The Taran­tula Ne­bula

Sky at Night Magazine - - LETTERS -

RAFAEL COMPASSI, BRAZIL, 22 DE­CEM­BER 2016

Rafael says: “This is not an easy tar­get be­cause of the light pol­lu­tion on the south­ern horizon from Porto Ale­gre and the sur­round­ing cities. Even in south­ern Brazil, the Taran­tula Ne­bula never rises above 50°.” Equip­ment: Mod­i­fied Canon EOS Rebel T1i 15.1 DSLR cam­era, Sky-Watcher Ex­plorer 200P New­to­nian re­flec­tor, Astronomik CLS CCD clip fil­ter.
