My first attempt at M16, particularly the Pillars of Creation, with the new camera.
I was hampered by the nebula’s location, which was directly above that streetlight (my arch enemy).
It took a lot of processing to remove the light pollution, but I am pleased with what came out in the end.
I’m really liking the new camera and just beginning to get the hang of it.
