The Milky Way from Scutum to Serpens to Sagittarius…Deep Sky Objects Galore!!!The Milky Way in Sagittarius, near our Galactic Center one of the richest areas of the sky loaded with deep sky objects…Many Messier & NGC catalog objects are visible here…
Emission Nebulae, Globular Star Clusters, Open Star Clusters, Star Clouds, & Dark Nebulae abound, simply put a “Fantastic” place to explore with a telescope or Binoculars!! Every Summer it is easily visible, and for us 40 degree + latitude Observers it is really low in the south …find a dark location away from city lights with a low Southern Horizon & look when there is no moon present in the sky! I posted them a little higher res than normal so you can zoom in a little, Enjoy!
