Zeta Scorpii

In addition to Mu Scorpii, the Scorpion's Tail is comprised of an open cluster NGC 6231 (partially viewed above) and the binary Zeta Scorpii (near the bottom of the photo). This image was simply 2 one-minute frames slapped together. Another part of the Scorpion's Tail includes a diffuse nebula referred to as the Northern Jewel Box. Will save that for another night.
