Small Magellanic Cloud
The Small Magellanic Cloud in a field almost 2½° across.
Three deep sky objects with the Cloud are readily visible (l.t.r.):
at left the thin blue nebula and cluster NGC 371 (Henize N76 is the nebulosity);
the very bright blue nebula NGC 346;
and just left of centre the very bright globular cluster NGC 330, shown on the photo as a bloated star.
