Welcome to AstroCapetown

AstroCapetown aims at sharing beautiful images of the night sky captured from my suburban backyard in Cape Town, together with information about the equipment, software and processing techniques used.

The Tarantula Nebula is a massive HII region in the Large Magellanic Cloud. This image was captured using the Telescope Services TS ED80 APO & ZWO ASI1600MM Pro in Narrow Band (HOO). See @AstroCapetown for acquisition details
