Order Notes

The Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8) in Sagittarius is a popular target for visual observers because it has both bright nebulosity and a nice star cluster.  Unfortunately, for most people in North America it never gets very high in the sky, so views are often compromised by haze and light pollution.

This RGB image was captured at Pine Mountain Observatory near Bend, Oregon.

 Scope: AP Starfire 142 at f/7.5
Mount: AP Mach1
Camera: QSI 583wsg at –15C

About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
