OBJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMAGE SESSION
Discovered by William Herschel in 1835, NGC 1965 is one of the many objects we can image independently within the Large Magellanic Cloud. The nebulosity present a circular bubbled shape formed by massive amount of gas and dust. A regular imager from the southern hemisphere can spend the whole season imaging fantastic objects from our outstanding neighbour galaxy. Surprisingly there are not much colour images of this particular area in the www with the resolution used.
