Had great timing this weekend with two clear nights. Saturday night with my AT106LE and IDAS LPS-V4 I shot two hours of the Lagoon Nebula and one hour of the Bubble Nebula region (still working on processing that, it is pretty swamped by noise). However I think my first try on the Lagoon Nebula here turned out quite well. This is processed in StarTools, though I am going to put some more time into reprocessing it in PixInsight this week as it is forecast to be cloudy again, to see how they stack up. For now, here is the StarTools version.

That's a real bummer!  I just did the Swan in the same general area.  It clears my neighbors rooftop for about 60 minutes on either side of the meridian, not much time, but better than nothing!
