Trifid Nebula

This is 26 minutes of capture of the Trifid Nebula (Messier 20, NGC 6514) I gathered last summer with the Televue 127 using the QSI. This nebula has two very distinct features: the dust lanes in the Ha emission zone, and the blue reflection nebula located on the bottom of this capture. This combines the three main observable types of nebulosity in one target (dark, emission, and reflection).
