Probably my favorite image from my astrotrip to Kiripotib in Namibia; Lagoon and Trifid nebula with IC1274. Such a colorful and interesting area!

Good stuff...I imaged this from Fuerteventura a while ago...didn't get anywhere near as much time on it as you did...

I assume that the Fornax 51 mount is available there and wasn't in your hand luggage?

lol! Indeed the Fornax 51 is for rent by Kiripotib, as well as the Riccardi (it's huge!) and the APM scope. 

So only 3 dslr's + the finderscope and MGEN in the hand luggage for me :p

Wow! Spectacular results for a DSLR! And being in Africa, I assume the sensor temps were quite bad as well. Or was this at high altitude? Great job on the processing too!

Thx! Actually it is winter now in Namibia and night time temperature at Kiripotib (at 1400m) drops down to 5 degrees Celcius every night and some nights even -3. So temperature wise it was all excellent :)
