Lagoon and Trifid

I shot this image of the Lagoon and Trifid Nebula's using the Stellarvue Nighthawk II and my Canon DSLR. I do not remember the statistics, only that it was 6 minute subs at ISO 1600. It illustrates the wide field available with this scope, though there is some definite curvature towrds the extreme edges of the field. It is a FAST achro, after all.
