Lo Barnechea, Chile
Televue NP101is , SBIG ST8300M
and Losmandy GM8
50 minutes total exposure (HDR)
Seeing 4/5, transparency 2/5

I stacked 50 minutes of three and one minute single exposures, using HDR under Deepsky Stacker.
This nebulae was made famous by the 1996 Hubble Pillars of Creation image that focused on the nebulous pillars at the centre of this image. This image shows that the nebulae is much largen than the popularly referenced central area.
