Lagoon Nebula


We went to a one-week camping trip to the Ozarks (Mother Nature's Riverside Retreat). On the campground the night sky was spectacular. This image was taken using my Canon Rebel XT (350D) connected to my Celestron Nexstar 102 SLT (FL=660mm, Aperture 102mm, f/6.5) that was mounted on my motorized Astrozap mount. This is a stack of 49 images (30s exposure time, 1600 ASA). Processed using the IRIS software and post-processed in Nebulosity version 2. Taken on 07/23/2014.
