Here's my submission, M8 - the Lagoon Nebula in Sagittarius:

High Resolution Version and more image information available at http://www.astronome...php?c=145&p=458

This image is from a stack of 107 x 3 minutes (5 1/3 hours) at ISO 400 using focus stacking to provide a flat focal plane across the FOV. Imaging train was a Celestron C-8 (orange tube) with a Celestron focal reducer at f/5.8 (1160mm), and a Gary Honis modified Canon 450D. Guiding was with an ONAG on-axis guider, Lodestar autoguider, and Phd guiding.

Thanks for looking!



Please vote for your favorite image to send to the finals. Voting will conclude on December 8th at Midnight ET.

Many thanks to all who took part in the contest!
