M11, M17,M26 and Epsilon Lyrae

17-18/7/15

Roger Samworth

 

Thought it might be too windy to do any decent imaging last night, but in fact, it wasn't.

 

M17 Omega nebula, or Swan nebula ( the swan is upside-down). I like this one!

M11 Re-visited this - I imaged it this time last year

M26 Open cluster in Scutum.

And now for something completely different :-

I had a go at the double-double in Lyra with some success. The image here is in fact a composite of 2 exposures so that the background stars can be seen without completely over-exposing the doubles.
