You captured that little “spike” on the end of the dark pillar which contains a protostar.  Bravo!

This is an image of M20, also known as the Trifid Nebula. It is a combination of an open cluster, an emission nebula, reflection nebula, and dark nebula. It is located about 4,100 light years away in the constellation Sagittarius. I have posted both and LRGB and an SHO narrowband version. I think this gives a nice contrast to the difference between LRGB and narrowband images.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
