Gabriela Mistral nebula, NGC 3324, in Carina. Red: SII 2hrs, Green H-alpha 3hrs, Blue OIII 3hrs, all in 1hr subs. A very clear face, strong in OIII, seen in right profile. The face is outlined by a shock front strong in SII. The tangled "hair" toward 8 o'clock is an outlying part of the Eta Carinae nebula complex. There are faint hints of H-alpha emission throughout most of the background. For a different rendition, see adjacent image.
