Photographer's Note

We can see in this picture 2 nebulas.
M8 and M20(Lagoon nebula and Triffid nebula).
M8(Lagoon nebula) is the big nebula in the down side of the picture.
M20(Triffid nebula) have 2 colors red and blue but for see the blue color we need more time of exposicion.
It was made with a refractor telescope (W.O. Megrez 80 II 555mm) and with the nikon D50 without the lowpass filter.
I need 5 x 180 seconds.
This objects are more visible in the summer, but now at 5 a.m. you can see them.
