    Default Somewhere on Carina



    For reasons beyond any reasonable explanation I took a random spot on Carina to photograph. I'm still experimenting with Background removal on my really light polluted skies.


    Canon 5DII - 100mm F2.8 Macro Lens
    17 light frames 5 seconds ISO3200 F2.8 - 10 dark frames
    Stacked on DSS

    I think this might show NGC2516 on the top right and NGC3114 on the bottom left but I'm not very sure can anyone confirm.

    How does the result look considering the heavy light pollution and the scaling down to 720 pixels ?

    I have no idea where the color went

    If anyone can help me with interesting targets around this sky area I will point my camera to those areas next.

    Thanks Pete I used deep sky stacker for the stack then removed the background with PixInsight, I'm happy with the result because I know how the frames looked
