    Default Carina and LMC



    Hi,

    The Carina Nebula and Constellation appear to be much larger and more
    striking than the Large Magellanic Cloud. Is there any comparisons on the
    Web with photos?

    You're right. Carina is sprinkled with many bright stars, open
    clusters, and a hotspot at eta Carinae. The LMC is like a detached
    hink of the Milky Way.

    Well the Carina Nebula is a heck of a lot closer than the LMC, so of course
    is generally brighter. To counter that, the Tarantula nebula in the LMC is
    one of the most awesome views in the sky IMO.
