Description

Looking to the southern skies hosts many stars, clusters and nebula. The main structures here are the Carina Nebula (Eta Carinae Nebula, NGC3372), Running Chicken nebula (IC2944) along with a number of star clusters. Imaged in a fairly light pouted back yard with Semi-APO filter, so required a lot of gradient removal.
