Very pleased with this image using data downloaded from the PIRATE telescope on Mount Teide-credit:telescope.org -Open University. To celebrate the inauguration of the PIRATE and COAST telescopes on the 6th July 2017 - I directed  PIRATE towards Messier16 inorder to try and replicate the iconic Hubble Space Telescope image 'The Pillars of Creation'. I selected an exposure of 3 minutes using Sulphur, Hydrogen Alpha and Oxygen filters. Nice and 'technicolor; - just the way I like them! :happy7:
