The Laguna Nebula (M8)

First attempt at it, trying to take advantage of my last days on a very dark site; Unfortunately failed to counteract too much wind, so it totaly lacks precision.

Gear: Olympus E-PL6 with Skywatcher 130PDS 632mm/4.86 and SWCC at f/4.5 on Celestron Nexstar SLT tracking Alt-Az.
Capture: 14 lights (/ 31% keep) x 30s x 3200iso, 23 darks
Processing: Regim 3.4, Fotoxx 12.01+
Site: deep country 26km from Limoges, France
Sky: good seing, SQM=21.4
