Artist's Description

The Great Carina Nebula is a giant diffuse nebula composed of ionised hydrogen. It is one of the largest H II regions in our Milky Way galaxy.

This star forming nebula has produced the very conspicuous peculiar star Eta Carinae, which is among the most massive and luminous stars in the Milky Way, and perhaps in the universe. There are approximately 224,000 stars in this image.

Technical details – Canon 40Dh with 200mm lens at f/4, 53 × 120 second exposures @ ISO1000. Dark subtraction, flat field application, registration, stacking and processing in IRIS. Total exposure time 106 minutes on 9 February 2008. The colours are natural.

Here are some examples of my astrophotos as laminated prints
