New image of M20 also known as the Trifid nebula or NGC 6514, this is an H II region located in Sagittarius . This is a combined data from two cameras, first imaging session was taken from a desert site Israel on June 19th, 2015, camera- 450D monomod, 17X780sec on Luminance filter, calibration frames were taken as well. Second imaging session was taken from the same desert site on July 17th, 2015, camera- 6D modified, 9X600sec on RGB, calibration frames were taken as well. Total Subs- 5.40H. Note that the 6D is a full frame so I had to crop it that it will fit the size of the 450D crop sensor. Attached are a full version
