Description

I was inspired to give this target a try seeing Ignacio Diaz Bobillo's excellent recent image of this. Since I'm lucky enough to have this field available to me I'm doing the rounds of the Greater Eta Carina nebula area... NGC3503 on the other side will be my next target.

It's clear my skills and perhaps seeing aren't quite up to Ignacio's (under-statement on skills!) and that some of his more gossamer detail was going to be lacking in my image so I decided to grab some hours of SII (and there is some to be had) to make this a little different as an SHO rendering rather than bicolour as I think Ignacio has done.

Stacked in S, H, and O channels in APP and combined and processed in Startools 1.7 with final selective tweaks in PS.
