Here is about 6 hours on the Cave Nebula (That's a lot, for me!)

This image was shot over the course of 3 nights. I'd collect an hour on the Lagoon, and hope over the Cave once M8 ran into the treeline.

This was a object I hadn't tried until this year, and was really excited to see that first sub come through.

Thanks for looking!
