M 8 Lagoon and M20 Triffid Nebula

2003 August 3rd  from Dengie Marshes, Essex, UK
 Standard SLR camera at 540mm prime focus of 100mm Televue APO refractor.
Tracked using an ST4 care of Eddie Guscott's set up.
Kodak Elite II colour 200 ISO film no filters
1 x 20 minute exposure scanned and contrast stretched in Photoshop

This pair of objects were low on the horizon and therefore suffered from effects of the light pollution and low level summer "muck".A lot of work was needed in photoshop to remove the colour gradients.
