Default Back into Space

Stacked and processed 12 x 15 minute exposures, (3 hours total exposure) flats and darks subtracted. I thought the single frame last night was nice, but perhaps a little over-saturated. Whilst I like the extra dramatic feel to it, this one is far more natural. Detail is better too. Pretty happy with this one.

The Carina Nebula is a large, complex area of bright and dark nebulosity in the constellation Carina, and is located in the Carina–Sagittarius Arm. The nebula lies at an estimated distance between 6,500 and 10,000 light-years from Earth and approximately 480 light years across. To put that in perspective, the sun is about 8 light minutes away from Earth and our nearest star, Alpha Centauri, (one of the pointer stars near the Southern Cross) is just under five light years from Earth. Or about 95,000 years in a rocket ship.



Just before the big camera got going on the Carina Nebula through the telescope, I piggybacked my little DSLR on top of the scope and used a standard crappy 18-55 kit lens to try for a widefield of the region using the telescope to track it. Stacking 61 images of 3 minutes each, the resulting image shows a slice of our milky way not far above the Southern Cross. You can clearly see the Great Carina Nebula and some open clusters of stars. As you can see, the rest of the mist is made of stars, gas, dust and needs a good vacuum.
