M8: a mosaic for the Lagoon

M8 is quite an easy target for astrophotographers. This nebula, in the heart of the Milky Way is very bright and full of details. But, for some configurations (as mine), its large surface turns things a bit tricky if you want get all of the nebula in the FOV.

I tried a little, two-piece mosaic with it. And it worked quite well!


This mosaic was captured through RGB filters, with 3 subs for each filter and each mosaic piece. As explained in my article about mosaics, seals were eliminated in the processing job. I used wavelets processing to highlight the dark patches of the nebula.
