Eta Carinae Nebula

Eta Carinae Nebula taken in Tekapo

The Eta Carinae Nebula is one of the largest and brightest nebula in the night sky. It was one of my mission to take the picture of the nebula in southern hemisphere. I took this picture when I visited Lake tekapo in New Zealand in July 2013. The nebula was so birght that I decided to take it with short exposure along with longer exposure. Then, I combined them into one picture after coming back home.
