Here's my M8 taken from my backyard on 6/16/2013. I used QHY8L color CCD through a TMB-130SS with a William Optics Flattener IV. All processing was done with PixInsight. Exposures were 19 x 300" and 3 x 600" through an Astronomik CLS-CCD filter.
You can see a larger version here: M8 The Lagoon Nebula

Thanks for looking!

Ok, let's go for NGC6888, unless it's been done too recently.
