This is M17, aka, the Swan/Checkmark/Horseshoe/Omega Nebula in the constellation of Sagittarius. This is a do-over of my ancient version, one of the first images I captured with my (unmodified) Digital Rebel back in 2004. The current image is decent, considering the horrible conditions under which it was captured: the transparency and seeing were quite awful, and all the equipment was dripping with dew. Not bad considering. A higher resolution image is also available. North is up.
