This is the third processed image from my trip to Namibia, probably the best one of the entire set, since it has the most data: almost three half nights of "gross time", but barely 4 hours after discarding bad frames.

Error during Astrobin API call with code 0, Error while trying to download (code: 502): https://www.astrobin.com/api/v1/image/lhdxt2/?api_key=885a5044d70c9bf73fd815eed46dee3b5f47717e&format=json&api_secret=cd2c49b2bee40267dab3692761610eada5ff801a

To the right, you can see the big and gorgeous Lagoon nebula. On the left side, the much smaller, but still nice and interesting (and more coloured) Trifid Nebula.

They're both also known respectively as M 8 and M 20, from the Messier catalogue.
