Just delightful.

One we’re always excited to see on our trips to Namibia. 

Sometimes seeing NGC 6231 when we’re on La Palma reminds us of The Jewel Box...

Adry, that’s a superb image of a beautiful target. The only time I’ve seen it was through the 16” Meade LX200 at the Mount John Observatory, NZ on a trip there in 2013. It blew me away then and your image has brought back great memories for me, thanks. Geof

I already photographed NGC6231, and yes, you're right they are very similar.

Thank you very much geoflewis . It's really a great target, and its colorful stars live up to its name.
