Lagoon and Trifid by Rohan Hinton
First light with my new William Optics RedCat 51, a 1.5hr unguided image. I love how this little scope performs, the stars are crisp, the colours pop and you really gain a feel for how vast spaces is. This wider view of the sky (compared to my regular deep space photos) contains the Lagoon & Trifid Nebulae, a globular cluster, 3 open clusters and countless stars.
