The Statue of Liberty Nebula - March 2023


This is NGC3603 and NGC3576 (AKA The "Statue of Liberty" nebula), a massive H-Alpha region containing a very compact open cluster, located in the constellation "Carina" about 20,000LY away.

I took this photo on multiple nights, between 6th - 31st March 2023, through a C8 SCT at f6.3 using a QHY268M astronomy camera.

Imaged across multiple nights from my backyard that is under a Bortle 4 semi rural sky. The total integration time was 22 Hours and 15 minutes in Halpha, OIII and SII Narrowband, where 2 hours of that time was through RGB filters for the star colors.
