The Trifid nebula, aka M20 or NGC 6514, a popular and bright nebula about 4300 light years away in the constellation Sagittarius.
This image was taken through my Celestron 8" SCT on the CGEM at f6.3 using a cooled and astro-modded DSLR.
RGB subs: 6x60s, 5x120s, 5x180s, 5x240s, 4x300s
HII subs: 10x600s
OIII subs: 9x600s
Total Time: 04hr 21min.
Most of this image is natural color because I only used 10% of the HII and OIII stack to emphesize the detail in the red and blue hues.
