Here is yet another shot of M16, the Eagle Nebula, this time taken with the 10" Newt at f/4. This image was taken at Chiefland during the Spring Partyt with the 10" Newtonian on the final night (Saturday). Seeing that evening was excellent and much better than the 2 nights prior. However, with dawn quickly approaching, only 100 minutes were acquired.
