M8 Lagoon - Second and First Light combined

I managed to get some more data last night. For the sake of being able to easily add the other nights haul, I framed it up pretty well the same as the previous night (with the Triffid nebula in an uncomfortable spot). I had more win last night as the camera battery didn't go flat before I finished my calibration frames.

My processing is getting better, though I still have to follow guides, I am freelancing a little bit so some things are to my taste.

Just over 2.5hrs data.

39x240s guided

Well done. Very rapid return for effort. Now that you're up and running, and you know that the field of view can do both the Lagoon and the Trifid, you might like to re-centre on a point somewhere between the two. It would look lovely if they were all nicely balanced.
