One for the DSO-deprived observers in the northern hemisphere!
(Hey I know. I live there now!) <grin>

NGC 3372. Also known as the Keyhole nebula and the Eta carina nebula
A great object that is visible to the naked eye even in moonlight.

30 minutes exposure, Kodak Ektachrome 400.
5" f/5 refractor, prime focus.

The field is about 3* x 2*

Cheers

Maurice

Very nice pic. BTW, I had the opportunity to visit most of your website a few nights ago and really enjoyed it. Sounds to me like you have really put in some hours at the eyepiece!

Clear skies,

Nice shot. Someday I hope to get far enough South to see some of those great DSO's. How do you like the E400? I use E200 and push it 1-2 depending on the object.
