Scutum & Sagittarius Region

The multitudes of stars, star clusters, both dark and bright nebulae populate this rich region of southern Scutum and northern Sagittarius.

A much "bothersome" area for Charles Messier, who could not fathom what these objects were and was primarily interested in comets. I'll take the permanence of these objects any day. Sorry Charlie!
