Due to bad weather, DIY, temporary absence from home and grandchildren husbandry etc. my telescopes have had to remain in their boxes and my laptop has had to come to my astro- rescue.  As M8 never gets high enough for me to image from our backyard,  I decided to point the Autonomous Robotic Telescope in its direction.  One single 2 minute image  using BVR  filters and the PIRATE telescope.  So pleased with the data I decided to enlarge the detail at the centre of the nebula and produce a photo collage. The enlargement shows the 'Hourglass' Nebula. I only recently found out this is what its called.:happy7:  I do like a 'gaudy-maudy' colour palette - so chuffed with this one.
