NGC 3324 - Gabriela Mistral Nebula


29 April 2013

Processing some data from 2 weeks ago. NGC3324. GSO RC10CF, QHY10, 6 X 900sec Ha 4 X 900 sec RGB 

NGC 3324 is also called the Gabriela Mistral nebula, because of the striking resemblance with the Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet, who was born and raised in the Elqui region, home to the Cerro Tololo, Cerro Pachon and Cerro Morado professional observatories.
