    Default Wide field image of Lagoon and Trifid Nebula.



    When I was finishing up some imaging this morning I was able to get a wide field image of M8 and M20 together. Only shot 5 3mins 800 iso subs and no darks. It's one I'll add to my list and get some more detail soon. Been getting in a habit of just before I packup for the night I'll take some quick shots of some images to add to my list for future nights.

    Thanks and clear skies,
    Tom.

    Nice picture. I never noticed they were that close together. You must have had good weather for that picture. Nice job.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I also never noticed they were that close together until last night.

    Thanks Jeff, It was taken using the 80mm EON, Hutech/Borg focal reducer/flattener and Hap Griffin modded T1i. Plan on getting some more subs and spending some more time processing. Still pulling my hair out with the processing part of this great hobby.

    I really like the FOV, bit wider then when I had my 80mm. Next time if you can frame those two lower you might be able to squeeze in NGC 6546, its like the arm of the lagoon nebula.

    As far as tuts go, here's a few to help you get started that I like. Goes through basics PLUS how to bring the dust out
    Zenfolio | Salvatore Grasso | Tutorials
    for some color pop, method 1 of this works best 1-3 times (can over saturate if over done)
    Stargazer - A Private Observatory In The Heart Of Europe
    sharpening mask
    Astro Imaging Tutorial PhotoShop Layer Mask, Unsharpen Mask, and Gaussian Blur.
    To get rid of the green tint Canons have,use the HLVG as almost to the last step (after you do your final stretches and levels)
