NGC 3372, The Carina Nebula in Hubble (HST) Palette Narrowband

This is my first attempt at rendering a Hubble Space Telescope (HST) palette image using narrowband data acquired with our QSI683 CCD and Astrodon 5nm narrowband filters.

Data acquired in our driveway in Johannesburg, South Africa, Ha was shot during a nearly full moon, OIII and SII were shot with no moon.
