Hi guys,

M8 - The Lagoon Nebula,

40x240sec. subs + darks and 7x60sec. subs.
Modified Canon 1100D(T3).
Skywatcher 120ED Pro Refractor.
SW EQ6 Mount guided with Celestron Nexguide autoguider.
Location: Mountain Sanctuary Park, South-Africa.

Larger version: http://astrob.in/48954/



Phil Hosey



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.
