M8, the Lagoon nebula
20 - 7 minute exposures at 800 ISO on September 10, 2007 in Puimichel in the south of France.
This image was made with a modified Canon 350D, and a 20cm (8") f/2.75 ASA Astrograph.
This is a 50% size version the above image.
This is a combination of the M8 and M20 images, made on seperate nights to show how close they are in the sky.
