Just returned from my last 3D2N trip to Mount Bromo for 2014 and like one of my trips on September last year, our first night was extremely cold and foggy but all of the participants managed to capture the Milky Way galaxy upon our arrival before it set below the horizon. The sky condition on our last night was pristine and I’ve captured more deep sky objects during this trip than any of my previous trips there, for a change. The deep sky objects were imaged using a Canon 5D MKII and a 135mm F2 lens. If you’re keen to join me in May 2015, click here for more information.

Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is one of the nearest galaxies, and a satellite of the Milky Way. It’s the third closest galaxy to the Milky Way.

Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex is a dark nebula of gas and dust, an emission and reflection nebula of about 14 light-years across, that’s located at some 460 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Ophiuchus.
