This is an RGB plus narrowband blend of the beautiful Lagoon Nebula, with RGB data captured using my ASI094-MC and narrow band data kindly shared on AstroBin by Theodore Arampatzoglou (captured using an SBIG ST-10XME with Baader filters).

I have chosen a more gentle than typical SHO pallete blend to soften the nebula, with the Bok globules standing out quite well in the full screen view.

Thanks for looking!
