Description

Eta Carina is normally way too over-exposed when imaging this area to bring out the detail in the Keyhole and local nebulosity, so i combined 10 second HaRGB exposures with 1 second exposures of the Homunculus nebula. This result then depicts the area as seen by eye in an eyepiece through my Meade 14RC scope.
