Interesting colors.  You chose to spend more time on the RGB than L;  any particular reason for that approach.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

 

This is an image of M8, also known as the Lagoon Nebula. It is an emission nebula about 6,000 light years away in the constellation Sagittarius. Its size is estimated to be about 110 light years by 60 light years.

 

Comments and suggestions appreciated.

Yes, this is fantastic.

 

There’s some guy that posts a lot of ISS videos and he tracks them manually with a dob. Crazy stuff.

Cool Brian!  I tried this once with a Losmandy G-11, needless to say a complete bust.  Thanks for sharing it.

Hi all:

Sh2-68 is a planetary nebula in Serpens that made its way into the Sharpless catalog (also cataloged as PN G030.6+06.2 and Simeiz 291):

Hi all

vdB 104 is a reflection nebula surrounding the 2.9 magnitude star sigma Scorpii. Sh2-9 is an emission nebula near the same star, so this is a combination of reflection/emission nebulosity:

Hi all:

Arp 136 sits adjacent to a pair of 6th magnitude blue stars. Its main component is NGC 5820 and is described by Arp as an "elliptical with nearby fragments". NGC 5820 shows a "streamer" to its southeast, possibly related to the nearby NGC 5821. A lot of fainter background galaxies dot the field:
