M8-The Lagoon Nebula on 9/6/13

It has been nearly a year since I really did some astrophotography. That has been for a number of reasons, mostly weather-related, but also because I’ve taken up model building and have just been really busy. Tonight was beautiful – a bit humid, but clear. I just had to get out and do some imaging. And I did. I took some nice shots of M8 and M31. With M8, in particular (shown above) I did shots at 1, 5, 15, 30, 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, 360 seconds to use as a demonstration in my Barnard Astronomical League presentation next week.
