5th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Lagoon & Trifid Nebulae

The Lagoon (M8) and Trifid (M20) are both bright nebulae in the southern sky and popular targets for observing in the Summer. The area on the right is considerably dimmer and harder to see, but adds nicely to a wide-field photographic composition. The Sulfur-II channel provides the texture in the center of the Lagoon.
