Comments: Stacked and processed with Images Plus. I am very happy with this software - although I have a lot to learn about it. Lots of stuff to see including Globular NGC 6544 and the nebula areas in the upper left - NGC 6559, IC 4685, IC 1274 and IC 1275. I like the sweeping "bridge" of nebula that connects these with the Lagoon!
