Eta Carina Nebula – Stephen Voss


To the naked eye the Eta Carina nebula is a faint smudge of light buried deep in the southern Milky Way. Long photographic exposures through a modest telephoto lens or small telescope reveals a complex region of glowing gas within a rich bed of stars. This image is a composite of multiple 5 minute images, equating to a total exposure time of over 1.5 hours, captured while the imaging telescope accurately tracks the rotating sky
