Lagoon & Trifed Nebula at Twin Bush
When you see a visible light photo of the Milky Way, you’ll notice that the galactic center has a dark area that runs though it, this is known as the great rift. It’s a cloud of dust that’s between us and the galactic center of our galaxy. In front of that dust cloud we can see some stars and nebula, which you can pretty clearly see in any Milky Way photo. The Lagoon Nebula is pretty prominent, showing up as a small pink or magenta area in the Great Rift. Here’s a close-up of Lagoon with the smaller Trifed Nebula just above it. You can see part of the galactic center at the bottom of the photo as well. This was taken with the startracker,; 40, 30 second exposures taken at 200mm.
