Comments: This beautiful region of the sky can be seen to the south during the peak of summer. This image shows a wonderful collection of deep sky objects: emission, dark and reflection nebulae, globular star clusters, and our own Milky Way galaxy on the back ground. A slightly narrower field of view may be seen here. A close view of the Rho complex may be seen here.
