This image of the Lagoon and Trifid I started capturing about two month ago the first session I took with my 6D modded, the second session I took some data in HA with 450D mono,Than I minimized the HA image and combined it on the color stacked image, than I took the full version of the Trifid minimized it to fit the Trifid in the stacked image, when all done I started processing and here is the final results. Note that the total integration time is about 11 hours, Darks, Bias and Flats were added as well for all images.
