Description

The Statue of Liberty Nebula (NGC 3576) is a bright emission nebula in the constellation of Carina. It's about 100 light-years across at a distance of about 9,000 light-years. There's prolific star formation occurring in this nebula and because of this, there are many hot, young, massive stars which produce huge amounts of ultraviolet light ionizing the nebula. Also the stellar winds from these massive stars cause some of the looping filaments and their ultraviolet radiation energizes the HA, OIII, and SII making it a very colorful target.
This was a combination of 2 sets of HA, OIII, and SII data (4 subs each @300s) from Telescope Live's One-Click Observation, processed with Pixinsight.
Hope ya like it!
