This wide-angle photo of the region around Eta Carina was produced by stacking and processing 3 photos taken with a Fuji Finepix S602 digital camera on maximum zoom, with 1600ASA speed setting and 15 second exposure time for each photo. The camera was mounted piggy-back on a tracking telescope. South is up in this image, taken in December 2003.

This similar photo was taken in April 2004, again with the digital camera mounted piggy-back. But this image is a single photograph with 400ASA speed setting and 1 minute exposure time. The 1 minute exposure was achieved using the multi-exposure mode of the camera to overlay 4x 15 second exposures on the one image. The image has been enhanced to darken the background and sharpen the image.
