ETA Carina Nebula (my first proper target from NZ)


Recommended Posts



You have a great image, lots of detail. I know from living in Perth WA that AP in the Southern Hemisphere is a hard one as getting a good alignment is not easy due to Sigma Octans being a very dim star and well away from the actual Pole position.

Are you outside of Wellington. I have family there (my son) and I know the city lights can be an issue. Best place I went was Kaikoura for a dark sky.

Thanks for the comments. Think I might have overdone the toning down of stars (new version below). I'm in central Wellington but driving to darker skies when I can. Rig fully mobile now thanks to a new windows 10 tablet.
