  • M17 Omega Nebula

    From a few nights ago. I finished up at around 3am but fell asleep on the floor next to the telescope. Woke up at 6 with ice dripping onto my cheek from the dome above.

    3 hours 20 minutes of exposure on the Omega Nebula.

    The Omega Nebula is between 5,000 and 6,000 light-years from Earth and it spans some 15 light-years in diameter.

    I can make a flying bird from that pattern. (You have patience)!
    It's the little things!

    Cheers, Greg C.
