Hi all,

 

Managed my 4th night out since the beginning of October on thursday. Between bushfires and absolutely torrential rain we have had a terrible summer for imaging here on the east coast of Aus. I decided to have a go at imaging the Statue of Liberty Nebula, which is fairly close to the much larger, brighter and more famous Great Nebula in Carina.

Thanks everyone. Was hoping to add more data last night but the clouds came in.

Beautiful nebula and good work! Everytime I see a good image like yours from southern skies, the saying "the grass is always greener behind the fence" comes to my mind ;)

I feel with you regarding the lack of clear/usable nights. Better times will come!

Completely reprocessed in PixInsight. Since the weather still refuses to play nice here in Aus.
