Andy Campbell took this two panel mosaic of the Great Carina Nebula (NGC 3372) using his Stellarvue SV70T, QSI683wsg-8 camera and Astrodon filters on his NEQ 6 Pro mount.
Andy says, "My first completed two Panel Mosaic - Eta Carina Nebula in Narrowband with RGB stars. This project was bigger felt like it was bigger than Ben Hur as it took almost a month to gather the data and almost 3 days to collate & process. Preprocessed in Nebulosity, Aligned with Registar and post production in PScc 2017 & Nik. Approx 10 Hrs each 30min subs Ha, O3 & S2 Astrodon 3nm. Taken from my suburban backyard in Melbourne, Australia, during Feb 2017."
