The eagle nebula is one of the objects I captured last summer but didn't find the time to process.

For this image I used one hour of integration time of RGB images and mixed in the red channel (mainly H-alpha) from 15 frames I took through an UHC-filter. Despite my camera is unmodified there was a lot of information captured there.
