Description

We finally had a single night of clear sky here in Sydney, after months of terrible weather. I've upgraded various components in my system, so I thought I'd go to a part of the sky which delivers so I could test it all out. Still lots of tuning to do, but decent result for a single night, and my first use of N.I.N.A and PHD2. Image is a narrowband SHO of a particularly dusty southern part of the awesome Carina Nebula. 40 x 120s of Ha, OIII and SII
