Paul Shorttt recently posted this image to the Sky-Watcher Australia Facebook group. NGC 3324 in the southern constellation of Carina. This open cluster and star forming region is also commonly called Gabriela Mistral.

Taken using a Skywatcher Esprit 120ED APO refractor on a Sky-Watcher EQ6 mount using a ZWO 1600mm camera. About 4hours worth of narrowband exposure. This stunning image was captured in Whakatane New Zealand.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful work Paul.

Another fine example of astrophotography as art!

Stephen MacMahon has just finished assembling the new Sky-Watcher 400P (16") Collapsible GOTO Dobsonian telescope that will be installed in the observatory at The Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest Astronomy Group.

Think that ladder is going to get used a fair bit!

Thanks for sharing this Stephen. Hope it won't rain too much ...
