Omega Landscape

Omega Centauri, the brightest globular cluster in the sky against the hills of the Argentinian Patagonia. The rocks were light painted with a flashlight because it was pitch dark!.

Besides beautiful Omega there are two galaxies in the photo. Centaurus A (NGC 5128) and NGC 4945 a galaxy very similar to our own Milky Way. Let's see if you can find them!
Canon EOS 5D Mark II, f/8 @ 200 mm, 3.2s, ISO 400, No Flash
