Star clusters and Nebulae within the Large Magellanic Cloud


Another close up into the famous deep southern sky object, Large Magellanic Cloud.
This region contains star clusters, double clusters, a super cluster, emission nebulae and a globular cluster (NGC1850, 1854, 1855, 1856, 1858) in the Dorado constellation, located in the northwest part of the bar of the Large Magellanic Cloud at a distance of 168,000 light years from the Sun... location of the imaged area is shown in the thumbnail image of the LMC.

This is an unusual cluster system because the main distribution of stars is like a globular cluster, but unlike the globular clusters of the Milky Way it is composed of young stars.

This object was imaged from a Bortle 4-5 quality sky.
Integration time was 10 hours and 35 minutes in bi-color, Hydrogen Alpha and OIII narrowband color with a C8 SCT at f6.3 with a QHY268M astronomy camera.
