    It's still wonderful. I guess I'm lucky that having some understanding of some phenomena does not jade me.

    Oh it is nothing like that. Eta Carinae was always one of my favorite observing objects since I was a kid. Staring at this intense orange peanut. Then years later the amazing high resolution images of that peanut, and the wonderful mystery that lay behind it, especially as it is a star we have never directly observed
