Carina Nebula - Victoria

Posted a cropped version of this one in another forum and someone pointed me here to where the full photo would be appropriate.

Just feeling my way into astrophotography and had a go at this the other night after a few tests in my backyard. I live near Plenty Gorge National Park so this was taken just on the edge of the park as far away from the streetlights as I could get. The purple splotch in the middle is the Carina Nebula. The Wishing Well Cluster and Southern Pleaides are also visible.
