      Description

      Here is the famous and  beautiful open cluster NGC 3293 in the Carina constellation.

      The HSO filters allow to show the amazing emission region in which it is located, which looks like a cosmic painting (remembered me the fabulous IC 5068 region).

      I tried to give a natural tint to the stars, although RGB exposures would have been better and maybe i will add it later!

      Hope you like it and happy end of year to all!

      Data from Telescope Live (6h10 Bundle set from 6 one click observations) taken from March to July 2021 with CHI-1 telescope at El Sauce Observatory, Chile.

      FOV is about 30x30 minutes and scale is 0.62"/pix.
