This is a two panel mosaic of Carinas' Core. This is a Bicolour version with RGB stars.

The Ha was taken with an RC8 while the Oiii and RGB came from a previous widefield version of the target, shot through an Esprit 80ed.

Processing was through PI and Photoshop.

As always any C&Cs are very much appreciated.
