The Eta Carinae Nebula (NGC 3372)

on Thursday, August 11, 2011

I took this picture last week, in Alto Paraíso - Brazil. The nebula was next to disappear behind the horizon, but i could take 13 good shots before the atmosphere get to strong.

For the picture, I use the folowing equipment:

Telescope: Orion Premium ED 102mm

Mount: Celestron CG5

Câmera: Canon 550d (T2i) unmodified

Alignment: False polar star made with a green laser. 

Stacking: Deep Sky Stacker 3.3.3 (with 10 dark and 15 flat frames)

I hope you like
