Updated: 9.1.03

Here's another version of M8, taken with a longer 1 hour exposure. This image was taken with the 80 mm AT1010 Stellarvue refractor, Meade f/6.3 FR and an IDAS filter. No darks or flats were used for processing. Compared to the 16 minute shot, this particular image is both deeper and smoother. Image was taken at Harmony, FL!
