A photo of  the "Lagoon Nebula", in Sagittarius, photographed from St. John's  in June 15, 2009 by David Caruk.

Lagoon Nebula (M-8) in Sagittarius is 9 images at 20 seconds each combined with Registax 5 and processed with Microsoft Image Editor and PhotoShop Elements.  An LPR and Hot Mirror Filter(Minus InfraRed) were used.  I have removed the IR filter inside the Nikon D70 giving it at least 5 times faster exposure of H-Alpha light.  I have sent a wide field full view image and a Higher resolution image for zooming into.

Camers is a Nikon D70 6 megapixel SLR attached to my Pacific Optical 450mm f 3.5  Aerial Camera Lens..

A photo of  the "M22", in Sagittarius, photographed from St. John's  in June 15, 2009 by David Caruk.

M-22 globular  cluster  in Sagittarius.   This is the second brightest globular cluster that is visable from the northern hemisphere.  The brightest is M-13.  Visually it is very difficult to see from the city because it is much lower on the horizon than M-13. This image is 6x20 second exposures stacked with registax 5.   The same equipment as above was used.
