1,060-hour image of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) captured by Amateur Astronomers – AstroSpace

P1060-hour-exposure in the Large Magellanic Cloud, in SHO colors. Taken by “Ciel Austral”.

The image is a mosaic made of 16 smaller fields of view, which, once stitched together form a high-resolution image of 204 Million of pixels! As of matter of fact, this is not the work of a single person but of a team of five french amateur astronomers called “Ciel Austral”:  Jean Claude CANONNE, Philippe BERNHARD, Didier CHAPLAIN, Nicolas OUTTERS et Laurent BOURGON.
