Eta Carina Nebula in narrowband


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

This is an image of the Eta Carina Nebula. It is a complex of bright and dark nebula about 8,500 light years away in the constellation Carina. It is the home of many star clusters including Trumpler 14 and 16. Trumpler 16 contains WR 25, the most luminous star in the Milky Way, which can be seen near the center of the image. It is one of the largest nebulae in the night sky measuring over four times the size of the Orion Nebula. This images captured with 5nm narrowband filters (Ha, SII, and OIII) and processed with the Hubble palette.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
