Southern Tadpoles Nebula - NGC3572 - Feb/Mar 2023


The 4th image out of the 4 objects that I was imaging simultaneously and is another nebula in the southern sky constellation "Carina". It is known as the "Southern Tadpoles" nebula being an analog of NGC 1893, the "Tadpole" nebula, in Aurgia.

Imaged over multiple nights from my Bortle 4-5 quality sky backyard for a total integration time of 11 hours through all three of the narrowband filters... although more integration time is needed to improve on this image, particularly OIII and SII signal, as not to need to stretch and noise reduce those channels to as of a level as I had to for this image resulting in a loss of details.

The telescope was a 8" SCT at f6.3 with a QHY268M astronomy camera cooled to -10°C.
