Another stunning object in the "summer" Milky Way. This is the Trifid Nebula, yet another gem in the constellation of Sagittarius. This is a Sigma stack of the best 24 of the 30 frames (the remaining 6 showed trailing/smearing due to tracking error). Interestingly, "dark subtraction" yielded a worse image than just stacking the un-dark-subtracted frames. I need to look into this. North is up.
