M17 Swan ( Omega ) Nebula

Imaged M17 last night which is located in Sagittarius at about 6000 light years from earth
Whilst less than half the size of M8 itís one of my favourite Nebulaís to image as it has so much detail and unique colours
30 x 5 minute dithered guided subs
20 x darks
Canon 600D unmodded with Baader coma corrector
ISO 800
EQMOD and Stellarium for Goto and tracking
No moon around until after 1.00pm and Bortle 3 to 4 skies
Seeing was only average last night
Stacked in DSS
Processed in Startools

Thanks for looking , comments most welcome !
