Imaged with an SW ED100 refractor, a Canon D60a DSLR, using a Ha filter to bring out the detail then blended with colour.

My take on the Trifid nebula (M20) in Sagittarious, imaged over 4 nights from sydney suberbs. I framed this including the edge of the lagoon nebula, M8 originally as part of a mosaic of the area but found the framing really interesting so processed it in its own right.
