A photo of  the "Eagle Nebula M16 ", in Serpens Cauda, photographed from Butterpot  on July 4, 2008 by Tim Caruk.

The Eagle Nebula is shown here as imaged by my 6 inch refractor scope from St John's on July 4 2008. At the centre are the so called Pillars of creation (Star formation) made famous by the Hubble. I combined 79 10 sec images with Deep Sky Stacker. The camera used was a modified Canon 350d. Both visible and infrared light composed the image using a Baader UHC-s filter..

The Lagoon Nebula is 4100 light years away toward the centre of our galaxy. Dark clouds show areas of star formation. I used my home made 8 inch Newtonian to record this image from Butterpot park on July 7, 2008 using a modified Canon 350d camera.
