EbolaBooze’s Fortnightly Astro Corner: The Great Carina Nebula 2: Widefield Boogaloo

I decided to try my hand at some widefield composition using my little scope – a Skywatcher ED80 refractor. Not much aperture on the little beastie, but the optics are solid, even if the focuser isn’t so much.


I’ve taken a narrowband picture of this nebula before (https://6angryalphanerds.com/2014/01/18/ebolaboozes-fortnightly-astro-corner-the-carina-nebula/), but this time I’ve taken a picture in LRGB, so you can see the true colours.

Clear skies!
