M16 Eagle Nebula

Recommended Posts

I thought I was never going to get this one as it's behind the trees at home. But suddenly my local astro group decided to go to a different location for Astro camp and I seized the opportunity.

18-8-2012

Talen at Blacklands Campsite in West Sussex

20 x 5mins 800 ISO, Modified Canon 450D @ 18 degrees and very damp

Skywatcher ED120, guided with PHD and dithering in APT on NEQ6

I stupidly left the CLS filter in place.

Being a public site and the hottest day of the year, there were loads of holiday makers there with torches, bonfires and car headlights going in and out of the camp, so i was told that leaving the CLS filter on was perhaps a bit of luck.

That's very nice Carole. I've had a go at M16 this year and managed less than an hour so far. Pesky weather! :( The way things are going that may be all I'm going to get until next year! :D

Thanks Coco and Dean.

Just realised I had missed Astroblagger's question

is this a crop?

Yes it's a crop, the full frame wasn't close enough to show the detail.

this is the full frame (before I did the re-process).
