Description

My first attempt at a dark nebula. Lynd's Dark Nebula 777, Baby Eagle, has been on my list for a while. Even though I am in between with my telescope upgrading, and only have a 5" newton, I gave it a try this weekend.

There were a lot of ariglow, either from thin clouds, mist or both, so of 340 lights, I only used the darkest 280.
