M8 Lagoon Nebula


Recommended Posts

Had a pair of unforecasted clear nights.  It was mid week and I hadn't planned anything so though I'd go M8.  It's tricky for me as it's low and I have water tower due south that is just too tall for this and the helix nebula to clear.   The framing is a bit off, when I was supposed to be doing all that I was too busy admiring Jupiter on my visual rig. Wednesday's seeing was outstanding.

I was very rusty though...  Made a good few mistooks!

Thanks everyone - it was just a great feeling to be back out there.  I had three nights last week including a Friday.

The mistooks were all of the comedic variety - wondering why the mount wasn't responding - not connect to ASiAir. Still not responding... left the power lead on the kitchen table.  

I have to say doing a little bit of visual + 3 imagings sessions has re-energised me, it was just what I needed.
