A new image has been uploaded. An unusual SMC

Hi all,

A new image has been uploaded. This time, it is a mosaic of the Small Magellanic Cloud (NGC 292, a well known star birth place). The novelty in this image has been the thorough use of narrowband filters (complementing the LRGB), in order to better stress the huge amount of HII clouds (signaling also the presence of neutral Hydrogen, HI) as well as the extraordinary contribution of OIII to the panorama. The result is a real, but unusual, view of the SMC.

You can find it at:

Enjoy!
