Description

Carina Nebula Snapshot taken from Hawaii with a simple setup of my Sony NEX7 attached to the 2" diagonal of my 175 refractor. The nebula complex rises fairly high in the southern sky above Hualalai mountain (8000ft volcano) on Hawaii island. It looks quite similar visually thru the refractor with a 2" eyepiece but lacks the color that the camera can capture. This is a quick snapshot of 12 x 30 second exposures with the Sony DSLR at ASA 6400. No guiding, no fancy processing and no long exposures, just a fun couple of minute shots thru the scope.
