Description

M16, The Eagle Nebula. Taken from my front yard. Bortle class 4 sky.
A large reason I got into this hobby was to have the opportunity to take this image. Planned for 5 hours of imaging and was only able to get 1.5. Tracking was being temperamental and collimation went out half way through, but I'm very pleased with the results.
