NGC 3293 Taken by Fabiano B. Diniz on April 27, 2017 @ Balsa Nova city
This regions shows the outskirts of the Great Carina Nebula, in the southern skies. The cluster to the center is the NGC 3293, one of the many star clusters that surround the Carina Nebula. Also visible here is the NGC 3324, the nebula to the left of the star cluster. This portion of the sky is very rich both in stars and deep sky objects. It is very pleasant to take a look at that region with a small telescope. The photo was taken with a 80mm f/6 apochromatic telescope and Canon T3i modified camera. There were 10 exposures of 2 minutes each at ISO 1600.
