Final M16 - 2 -  Zoom

This is the Eagle Nebulae – M16. Ive taken a few liberties with the colours, its taken with narrowband (Ha, SII, OIII) filters anyway. The first photo is of the entire area – so you can attempt to imagine the eagle – and the second is more focused on the area called the “pillars or creation” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillars_of_Creation from the famous Hubble shot. You can see how the pillars actually look “deeper, 3D(?)” that the rest of the surrounding material.

It is 13 subs of HA, SII, OIII – 1200 sec each @ -20 2×2 Bin
