Eagle and Omega Nebulae

Eagle (M16) and Omega (M17 or the Swan) nebulae are two bright objects of the Sagittarius constellation. Regarding their rather little apparent distance to each other, each one can be found easily when the other one is found for observation via a telescope. Having stated that, my telescope is not that wide to show both these emission nebulae in one frame, therefore, I used the panorama technique to illustrate these intriguing celestial objects together.
This photo consists of two separate photos taken by telescope.
