Omega Centauri


Recommended Posts

Our final night on the island of La Palma, had to catch my flight at 10 am, so the telescope was already stowed away. I spent all night scrolling through the sky with a pair of binoculars. 

I might as well make a sketch then, this is Omega Centauri as it was rising over the mountain, in between the trees.

I’ve been able to spot Crux and the Jewel Box from the top of the Roque, but that was looking downward to the horizon from the edge of the Caldera. Omega is a naked eye object, but you need free line of sight towards the South. That’s why I thought it would be nice to add the scenery.
