Astrophotography Emission Nebula

Astrophoto: Eagle Nebula – Messier 16 – 07/23

Reprocessed 2024: My 2023 and 1st try ever of the 7000 LJ away nebula in the constellation serpens. And my only real Astrophoto with my Takahashi FS-60CB.

After shooting a few single test exposures with my grab and go telescope, the Takahashi FS-60CB, this is my first true (and only) astrophoto with this little one.

M16 is really low on the horizon and therefore and due to the situation in my garden i was only able to make 45 usable subs in two nights.
