The colourfull surroundings of Eta Carinae within a 2 panels mosaïc.
I used several Telescope Live data sets with different framing and exposure times that I mixed to get this panorama. The very strong signal at the center of the Carina nebula allows to obtain many color shades in SHO rendering while the focal length used gives access to multiple and fine details, making this area a great pleasure to process, with many rendering possibilities.
The Great Carina Nebula NGC3372 is a large emission nebula located approximately 8,500 light-years away in the constellation Carina. At the center of the nebula, Eta Carinae is a highly luminous hypergiant star, currently the most massive star that can be studied in great detail, because of its location and size. 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.
Data acquisition from 2020/11/22 to 2021/05/23 at El Sauce Observatory, Chile.
