      Description

      My first completed two Panel Mosaic - Eta Carina Nebula in Narrowband with RGB stars.

      This project was bigger felt like it was bigger than Ben Hur as it took almost a month to gather the data and almost 3 days to collate & process.

      Preprocessed in Nebulosity, Aligned with Registar and post production in PScc 2017 & Nik.

      Approx 10 Hrs each 30min subs Ha, O3 & S2 Astrodon 3nm.

      Taken from my suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia, during Feb 2017.
