NGC 3372 Eta Carina Nebula

Recommended Posts

This is the first time I have imaged Eta Carina in Narrow Band.

The sky was at its best last night.

Sii:Ha:Oiii Hubble Pallete 40min:40min:40min

Atik 314L at -10deg, 8 inch Newt. HEQ6

I am amazed at how much detail the narrow band type imaging can give you over LRGB.

Comments welcomed.

Thanks Southernman and Matt. I imaged this from Sydney Australia.

I noticed the red wasn't present enough so I increased the red channel

Good grief... :eek: - Simply awesome image... :). I've literally just bought a 314L, but if I'm ever able to produce an image anything like this, I'll be gobsmacked... Wow...

Thanks Andy - I think you will find that the Atik 314L+ will not let you down! Its a super sensative, low noise camera that - when cooled below say -5degc, will produce fine images!

That's a bit tasty Paul, the second process has definately added more :).

Lovely colours, and the cropping makes you feel part of it. Great image.
