M20 Trifid Nebula

Had a couple of days without clouds, and got to have a bit of a play editing up some more photos.

The Triffid Nebula is around 4100 light years from earth and rather small at only 25 light years across.

Not enough data for these, but I did use the flats/darks/bias frames, getting to understand what I am doing a little more, just need more nights and less clouds/rain. and to understand pixinsight better (I’ve reduced the star volume somehwat)

And the SHO version

And the zoomed in versions
