Description

This is my first attempt at imaging M16 and the "PIllars of Creation". Where I am located I have many trees further down the road that block the view this low to the horizon, so with a 1.5 hour window each evening, I managed to get a few good clear nights and build the image successfully. I also plan on creating a drizzle of the center showing the pillars of creation in a bit more detail.
