Lagoon Nebula and Trifid Nebula


Date:             September 25, 2000            

Location:       Boon Michigan   

Equipment:   4" f6 refractor, G11, Taurus Tracker, St4  

Conditions:    Dark and clear 

Film:              Kodak Ektapress PJ400     

Exposure:      1 @ 60 minutes, 1 @ 45 minutes.  Adjusted in Photoshop

Comments:   I actually took only the 60 minute exposure at Boon this fall.  Then I stacked it with the 45 minute exposure that I took in Boon last fall.  This seems to give enough to take most of the "brownish" tone (both shots were very low to the horizon) out and still retain the nebulosity.
