The Best of the Carina Nebula

Mods, if this is in the wrong section please feel free to move.

This image came up on my FB feeds and I was just blown away with it by the HST.

Now I haven't a hope in hell of imaging it from here in the UK, but I would like to attempt it from a country further south.

I have tried to get the exact co-ordinates for this image but Astrometry can't resolve it, can anyone else give me the RA and Dec Coordinates for this precise image?

It is just simply stunning.

Many Thanks.

If you pan around in the Simbad sky survey catalogue around Eta Carina, should not be so hard to find I reckon? Can't help you with the exact coordinates. To be honest, I was never a fan of this Hubble picture. To my feel it is overprocessed. Looks like to much deconvolution was done on the nebula. Maybe it's just me... 😉

Thanks for posting this John and sorry I only just saw it.

You've probably worked this out already but in case not, the Mystic Mountain nebula (Herbig-Haro 901) is located at approx 10h 43m 53s  -59° 26' 59" (according to my version of Stellarium) 

Image below may make it a bit clearer(?) but if not, the images here and here (if rotated a bit) give the location.

Brilliant, thanks so much, I will now add those co-ordinates into my database for when I travel. I truly appreciate everyones help.
