Description

Shot from my Bortle 7-8 back yard on a night of average seeing as a first light for my Mewlon 250, pretty happy with the result. I've cropped out a lot of the region to just concentrate on the core of the Lagoon Nebula. As it's very bright compared to the rest of the Lagoon, I wanted to just show this dynamic and energetic region on its lonesome.
