This section of the Milky Way with 47 x 37 degree FOV extends from the constellation Sagittarius and Scorpion through to Norma and Ara. Many prominent objects like M8, M20, NGC 6334 (Cats Paw Nebula), the colorful region around Antares and the Pipe Nebula can be seen. The bright „star" between Antares and Sabik is Saturn.
