NGC 6589, NGC 6590 and IC 1284

This area is just south of M24, the little star cloud, in Sagittarius.  "The Sky" had a photo from this area that looked cool, so I decided to give it a try after I was done with other exposures in this area.  It was quite low in the sky while shooting; 12 degrees above the horizon when I finished just before midnight on 9/20/2006.  


Image details. Only 8 x 4 = 32 minutes total exposures on 9/20/2006 at the HAS site near Columbus.  Canon EOS 20Da (unmodified), Takahashi TOA 130 (a 5" APO refractor), Losmandy G-11 mount.    My current image processing workflow is here.
