Pillars of Creation – Eagle Nebula

Also known as Messier 16, this nebula depicts a large region of star formation that is located within the our Milky Way galaxy at a distance of about 7000 light years. This is a combination of four stacked ten minute images through the 11 inch Celestron that were taken with an h-alpha filter.
