This is my 100th Astrobin image! Glad to be part of this community with all that great astrophotographers! :-)

This black and white version of the Eagle Nebula was a bit tricky because of a very low moon which disturbed the guiding cam working properly… Five minutes later my guiding scope had a new 30cm long dewshield which helped a lot. :-)
