Description

Finally got around to finishing my Eagle Nebula. M16 is low in altitude at its highest point of the year, and with trees and heat from neighboring homes, it was challenging. I had to throw out quite a few subs and persist to collect the few hours I was able to finally collect. In the end, I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Didn't like my stars in the 1st rev. The background was a little dull and the stars were washed out with too much MT. Reprocessed to something better I think...I hope...
