M16 – The Eagle Nebula

This photogenic Nebula was imaged from my light-polluted backyard in St. Catharines.  I was happy to at least pull out some of the nebula structure with my modest equipment and un-modified Canon 450D.  The Eagle Nebula is a region of active current star formation.  Most of you have probably seen the famous Hubble image “The Pillars of Creation” The details of capturing this image are below:
