NGC 2070 and 30 Doradus - The inner core of the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC)

Description of object:

The image shows the central part of the famous Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud. This huge emission nebula is probably the biggest star forming region within the Local Group. Unfortunately, we just could capture six short exposed images of this region during our stay in March, 2014. This object will be still at our to-do list for the next time.
