Thank you for posting the Link to another image of the same stars. I could not find that object in that image, did you?
Nice find Skywatcher.

I downloaded the high res image of the Carina Nebula from the Wiki page referenced in the posts above. Hunting around I found another "thing" that looked similar. First pic is of the "Thing" The second pic shows the area where it can be found on the original. Might just be a spot of "missing image data" who knows?

ABOUT THIS IMAGE:
Resembling an opulent diamond tapestry, this image from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows a glittering star cluster that contains a collection of some of the brightest stars seen in our Milky Way galaxy. Called Trumpler 14, it is located 8,000 light-years away in the Carina Nebula, a huge star-formation region. Because the cluster is only 500,000 years old, it has one of the highest concentrations of massive, luminous stars in the entire Milky Way. (The small, dark knot left of center is a nodule of gas laced with dust, and seen in silhouette.)
