Keyhole in Eta Carinae

I took this last night in my backyard (3AM after moon set). Very tiny white blob in my EP buried in the Sydney light dome. Details starts to show after progressing Live Stacking. Taken at 5 sec per frame for about 600 total frames with ASI224MC planetary cam. The second one was taken in Central Coast on Australia Day (but forgot Bahtinov mask! So unfortunately the focus is mild). I need a dedicated DSO camera soon.

Reprocessed the images. This looks much more natural. Learning curve on PS

Good shot of the keyhole in that first image. The planetary cams are good fun with the live stacking too.
Cheers,
Tony

So,is that with SharpCap? Very nice. You got the bright rimmed globule nicely.
Is there any high pass filter used in there?

Yup Glenn, this is SharpCap Live Stack (it's free!). Does good job to me. No filters. No high pass filter in PS but might be embedded in Annie's plugin I use. No focal reducer. OTA is TSA-120. I waited OTA to cool down for few hours, and till the nebula got closer to the Zenith.
