"The Cat's Paw" NGC6334

Field centered on R.A. 17h 20' & Dec. -35° 50'


The "Cat's Paw" nebula NGC6334 (RCW 127). This nebula during the exposures had an altitude within 10° to 13° from the horizon. Thanks to the very dark skies of the site selected for the shot, it was possible to image something. Unfortunately I couldn't extend the exposure too much due to the arrival of some clouds. Crop of about 70% of the complete field.
