The Lagoon Triangle
I knew I could capture the Lagoon Nebula and the Trifid Nebula. I was really hoping to catch all the nebulae clouds off to the right of the Lagoon Nebula (to catch a big nebula triangle) and boy, this approach sure worked great for that. My son and I like to call that area (appearing in the upper right corner) the Bear Claw Nebula but it's actually several other named objects. This is definitely a really interesting part of our night sky, that's for sure!
I captured this image using iTelescope's T8 telescope based in Sliding Spring, Australia in 2 nights - 5/17/2021 and 6/5/2021.
