An astrophotographic portrait of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds
(lower left and upper right, respectively) above Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, home of the du Pont Telescope with which the SDSS’s APOGEE South Spectrograph observes the southern skies. The Magellanic Clouds are visible with the unaided eye in the Southern Hemisphere, but to capture an image like this requires a camera optimized for astrophotography.Credit:
