Description

This is the Keyhole Nebula, the central portion of the Carina Nebula, and to the right, the hypergiant star, Eta Carinae. Imaged with the RC10, at 2000mm. 2 Hours (8x15 minute) exposures at -30.C Processed in PixInsight. I processed the colours a bit differently. I kinda like the pinks in this one. Let me know what you think?
