Description

This image of the Eta Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) has been taken with the Canon EF200mm F2.8L prime lens. It is comprised of 30 subs of 60 seconds duration at ISO 1600. The field of view of the 200mm lens is approximately 6.5 degrees so it managed to capture all of the Eta Carina nebulosity whilst also showing some additional star clusters.
