M8 - M20 region in Sagittarius

Hakos, Namibia

The region around the famous Lagoon- and Trifid nebulaes could be seen here. This shot was taken with an SBIG STL11000 and a Takahashi FSQ106ED 530mm/f5 without any converter. RGB filters were used from Astronomik. Exposure times were 3x5 mins with the red filter and 2x5 with the green and blue ones. Additive exposure time is therefore 35 mins.
