I was watching a couple of Adam Block's videos, today, and in one on Drizzle Integration he was using one of the Pro Data Sets from Telescope Live's FSQ-106ED in Australia......well, I had that data set and decided to go ahead and process it. The data consisted of 69 RGB images @120s taken with an FLI PL16803. This was a perfect data set to use Drizzle Integration on because of the HUGE amount of stars filling a very wide field.
The Carina Nebula is also known as The Grand Nebula and lies at a distance of 8,500 light-years from Earth and is one of the largest diffuse nebulae in our skies, being 4 times larger and also brighter than the Orion Nebula. It lies in the Southern constellation Carina. There are so many different structures within the nebula, including the star Eta Carinae, Homunculus Nebula, Keyhole Nebula, Defiant Finger, Trumpler 14 , Trumpler 15, Trumpler 16, Mystic Mountain, WR 22, WR 25, HD 93129, HD 93250, and HD 93205...just to name a few.
Anyway, hope ya like it!......sure is RED!
