Dark Nebulas at Norma and Lupus

By    Eduardo Oliveira

This field between the constellations of Norma and Lupus shows several dark nebulae, the most prominent of them is Sandqvist 14,
just off-center (to the right) in the image. The image was taken on July 3rd during the IX EBA (Brazilian Astrophotography Meeting) at Fazenda São Paulo,
Padre Bernardo, Goiás, Brasil. The image is a joint work with Luiz Duczmal. We thank Jordan Patrick for helping with the post-processing of the image.
We also would like to thank Gilberto Rossi and his family for hosting us at his farm during the event.
