Gabriela Mistral Nebula - IC 2599, NGC 3324, NGC 3293

NGC 3324 is an open cluster in the southern constellation Carina, located northwest of the Carina Nebula (NGC 3372)[4][5] at a distance of 7,560 ly (2,317 pc) from Earth.[2] It is closely associated with the emission nebula IC 2599.

This was captured from my suburban backyard observatory. It is the result of 70 x 2 minute exposures using the QHY 268C cooled colour camera through and Esprit 127mm refractor.
