Rho Ophiuchus, Unmodified

Our neighborhood! –very tasty picture! –I eat it up while it eats me up

Werner Priller

This is the next shot of our Bavarian/Austrian collaboration, the famous Rho Ophiuchus region in the constellation of Scorpio, close to the center of our home galaxy, the Milky Way. My first stacked deep sky image done with an unmodified camera, the 5d III, processed by my friend Bernd Weinzierl from Eisenerz/Austria. Please take a lot at his great work here: http://innerberg-astro.lima-city.de/index.html. and a high-res version here: http://innerberg-astro.lima-city.de/Bilder%20gross/Widefields/Rho%20Ophiuchus.jpg . Some three years ago when I looked at such images, I was blown away by the sheer beauty of them. Today, I´m still blown away…only difference – I´m doing them by myself now – LOL. Here´s an interesting link if you want to go deeper into Rho Ophiuchus: http://www.constellation-guide.com/constellation-list/ophiuchus-constellation/. Enjoy!
