Antares Region

Wide field shot of the region near Antares in the constellation Scorpius. Antares is the bright red star just left of center. The large globular cluster M4 is just to its right. Another globular cluster, M80 is also visible, but appears stellar. There is a lot of large, faint nebulosity in this region (note the haze around Antares).
