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. The nebula is one of the largest diffuse nebulae in our skies. Although it is some four times as large and even brighter than the famous Orion Nebula, the Carina Nebula is much less well known due to its location in the southern sky.

Eta Carinae is a highly luminous hypergiant star. Estimates of its mass range from 100 to 150 times the mass of the Sun, and its luminosity is about four million times that of the Sun.

G'day Ben. I must say, I've come back to this image a few times today. Really appealing, great colour balance as others have said, sparkly colourful stars. I went back through some other images you've posted, and it's interesting seeing the development and improvement of the processing. Certainly doing something right! Keep it up!

That looks terrific. Vibrant colors, great star profiles and colours, sharp details. It's got it all.

I’m really looking into getting this image printed out. What do you guys go with? Matt, gloss or metal? Big W is having a sale on some metal prints. So I wondering if its worth going with metal?

That's come out very well and the RC OTA is performing well too. From the image posted the field looks nice and flat.

Very well done Ben, especially for a 6 inch and a 3 inch secondary blocking the light.
