Our galactic centre near Sagittarius. Lagoon and Trifid nebulae centre image.

Darks subtracted and processed with Deep Sky Stacker and Photoshop

The sky was beautiful tonight until the moon took over. Friday nights are my best night, but there are so many factors against limiting yourself to a particular night per week. I would have added more subs, but the extra light in the sky may have ruined it.

Anyway, I hope you all like it.
