Lagoon plus Triffid with added data

inspired by Martin's late season Lagoon, thought I'd better get in a get another hour or so while I could.

Managed another hour and half to add to the hour I got on first light with new camera a few days earlier. This time reduced to 2min subs as was having guiding problems after fiddling with the mount to improve declination backlash (I should learn my lesson to leave well enough alone)

this is now combined 2.5hours integration time. No real additional detail but extra data allowed me to push things a bit more without objectionable noise.

probably my last Lagoon of the season...probably

thanks all. i have a new telescope on order with a 400mm focal length. I'me thinking that slightly wider here would improve things and help pick up that extended nebulosity that goes outside the bottom of frame here. Might be a little late this year, but next :-)
