Another update from my trip to Namibia. Here's a second processed image, the Tarantula Nebula, this time inside the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Error during Astrobin API call with code 0, Error while trying to download (code: 502): https://www.astrobin.com/api/v1/image/422889/?api_key=885a5044d70c9bf73fd815eed46dee3b5f47717e&format=json&api_secret=cd2c49b2bee40267dab3692761610eada5ff801a

This is a star forming region, very similar to the famous Orion Nebula that we can see from our latitudes, only this is way bigger. If the Tarantula Nebula was as close to us as the Orion Nebula it would even cast a visible shadow.
