Reminds me of Steve Miller's song "Fly like an Eagle."  Remember that one from the 70's?

 

180s x 100 (5hrs) from last night. 8" Edge, .7 Celestron reducer, Asi533MC Pro, L'enhance filter, Siril, and Affinity Photo.

That's a good song to soundtrack while viewing the skies. Nice work. I really like the Eagle Nebula, but I always felt it looks more like a griffin than an eagle, but admittedly I may have listened to a bit too much Steve Miller.

Steve Miller was known as the Space Cowboy...
