M16 - 3x10min Ha - Southern Sky Gems Observatory - RiDK 305

Southern Sky Gems Observatory, Kalahari Desert, Namibia

This is the first Ha image shot from our newly inaugurated "Southern Sky Gems" Observatory - a fully remote controlled observatory Tal Faibish and I have located at Tivoli Farm, Kalahari Desert, Namibia.

The observatory is fit with Officina Stellare's RiDK 300 Riccardi Dall Kirkham 2.4 meter focal length telescope - a Beauty and a Beast in one sophisticated scope.

M16 was already very low on the horizon when we got to it, and managed to shoot 3 ten min. frames.
We were quite astounded by the result.

This isn't a formal "first light" as we rather give this honor to the result of a full imaging run
on this object or other.
