Description

I like this photogenic duo... the Trifid & Lagoon Nebulae. I could barely make the pair fit in a single frame. The image is a two panel mosaic, 3hrs of exposure on each panel. The image was enhanced using the Optolong L-eNhance filter... it really brought out the details in the Ha regions. I'm amazed what I was able to achieve with just 2 hours of RGB (OSC) exposure + 1 hour of L-eNhance (OSC).
