Carina Nebula


Recommended Posts

So we (newly weds) went to South Africa. Three weeks planned around new moon in the dark inland southern hemisphere. Awesome, what a trip!
At night however, clouds were present almost every day, giving me only 1,5 night to use the brought along equipment. Bummer. 
A Takahashi FSQ85 in Pelican case as carry-on, Vixen SP in the suitcase and QSI583WSG camera where taken there for the shots. What an amazing skies! (compared to the Dutch yellowish starless sky)

Anyway, I used SGP to do all the stuff automatically. All processing in Nebulosity & Photoshop.

Just read your other post too - the two shots that i've seen are worth the effort of getting your gear down there - well done soldier! lol

I've seen a lot of images of this object - mostly from space telescopes but rarely from the ground -- thanks for posting this
