Lying approximately 8,500 light-years from Earth, the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) is a very large complex of bright and dark nebulosity. This image is a blended version of NB data and Broadband data taken with the TOA-150/FLI ML16200 at Deep Sky West-Chile. I don't know how many different blending variations I made, but I settled on this one to show the blues from the OIII along with the preponderance of reds from the massive amount of Ha.  The total integration time, for this image, was 22.3 hours with exposures varying from 15s to 900s.
Anyway, hope ya like it!
Tom

Stunning! I have had to admit to and resolve myself that this is a beautiful target I won't see. At least not in this go 'round.

 

Beautiful. APOD worthy!
