Description

M16 The Eagle Nebula. This image is comprised of two nights of data. One set taken from my backyard and the other the following night in the Rush Valley area of Utah. Very pleased with the way this turned out especially for an un-modified DSLR. Thanks for looking.
***Revision B: reprocessed to darken background and boost saturation to increase contrast between background and faint nebula regions.
