15.5 hour exposure!

Here's an image I got after five consecutive nights of capture trough my telescope on a single object this week (Total 15.5 hours) and two nights of processing.

Name - M20 Trifid Nebula
Type - Emission (red), reflection (blue) and dark (dense molecular clouds(dust))
Distance - 7,600 light years away
Location - Sagittarius (still in our galaxy)

Have a great day while you ponder the enormity of it all.

Baz.
