Almost the Trifid

Having a look at the Trifid, I moved the scope a bit to the left (or was it right).

Surprise surprise, this looks interesting.

NGC6559 (fuzzy blob in there somewhere).

Never really looked at this part of the sky, but heaps happening.

Specs:

About 30 X 5m subs of LRGB, Ha, S2, O3 over 3 nights (17 hrs).

Didn't play with curves, just the way it came out.

Huge fun, and...got to see the Blues win (against the Roons)!!

The starfield in this area is so hard to shoot; it really dominates. But I agree, this area needs more love because if you get it right, it's spectacular.

Thanks Mick. Had a good look at Karl's and yes it is very good. Amazing the difference though.

Must have been a pleasant surprise for you Peter it's a lovely field that one, with a nice contrast between the various features.

Life's full of surprises.
Last night I had a cable snag that shorted out the 12vDC.
High current went through the EQ8 hub and blew it to pieces

Hi Karl, let's do a deal. Swap with your NGC6188!
Sorry about not commenting, it sort of slipped through the cracks
