Description

Disclaimer: I did not take this data and do now own the equipment used to capture it. I took this data from https://www.martinpughastrophotography.space/remote-imaging-and-telescope-hosting where you can download a complimentary data set while I was searching for different remote hosting sites on the southern hemisphere.

In any case I wanted to edit the data to see what's what. The data is exceptionally good and way better than at itelescope where I recently bought some telescope time for a southern object capture.
One has to bear in mind though that eta carina is equally strong in signal as maybe the orion nebula. So getting low noise data is very easy. Nevertheless it's still amazingly smooth. The setup captures about 6 times the amount of light compared to my own setup.
