R Lepus - Hind's Crimson Star
I captured this shot of R Lepus - Hind's Crimson Star a deep red carbon star that resides approx 1,300 light years distant. Found in the constellation Lepus, the Crimson Star is too dim to spot with the naked eye and may be the deepest red of all stars in our night sky. I captured this shot at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
