NGC3576/3603 - The torch Bearer Nebula

Something a little different..
This is in the constellation of Carina, and it always amazes me the shapes these nebulas form. There are actually 2 nebs here, the one on the left is NGC3603 and is actually 11,000 light years BEHIND NGC3576 which is 9000 light years away. In fact NGC3603 is the largest nebula in the milky way and is doing some serious star forming.

Image

Capture details
36 subs, ISO400, 300 seconds using the ED100 and the D60a. No noise reduction applied. Any feedback on that? I dont think it needs it :notaclue:

I have a pile of HA as well for this but am struggling with registering the stars against the RGB in photoshop. Something wrong with the scale? Anyone using other software to do this for DSLR imaging?

New things learnt..process in Adobe 1998 but assign an SRGB colour profile before publishing to the Web. Not all monitors are made equal and apparently this mitigates against loosing something in the colour when you post.Seems to work. Also, dont faff around with your imaging train mid project if you want to ultimately register your stacked HA file against your stacked RGB file in Pshop :(

Anyhoo, thanks for looking and clear skies
