Description

Between Southern Cross and Carina, there is a fine part of Centaurus with two beautiful nebulae: The Statue of Liberty and The Running Chicken.

I photographed this area with my 70mm Tamron. At the processing, I included the images taken with other lens, and I reduced the opacity, in order to keep a certain homogeneity to the whole.

These images are as follows:

NGC 3532 The Wishing Well Cluster :
;

NGC 3372 Carina Nebula :
;

IC 2948/2944 The Running Chicken Nebula :
;

NGC 3576 The Statue of Liberty Nebula :
