    Default M16 Eagle nebula



    This target is very low in the UK and impossible to get from my home as it's behind the trees.
    I was pleased to have the opportunity to do this for the first time last week at an astro camp near Brighton.

    18.8.2012
    20 x 5mins 800 ISO, Modified Canon 450D @ 18 degrees and very damp
    Skywatcher ED120, guided with PHD and dithering in APT on NEQ6
    I stupidly left the CLS filter in place, but as there were lots of campers with torches, bonfires and car headlights going in and out of the camp, this may have helped.

    Very nice Carole. I attempted to shoot this one the other night, but it was one of those nights where everything I touched turned to junk. Must have knocked my mount out of polar alignment or something. I had star trails after 20 secs. Phd was guiding on the wrong line, not the center one. I gave up after about an hour of trying to get guiding going. I was happy that the one 5 min exposure gave me some pretty good detail. When I get my alignment and guiding sorted out I'm going to try to get this one before its too late.

    I just hope I can get one thats even half as good as yours. Thanks for posting this beautiful Eagle.
