M20 The Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius
The Trifid Nebula (catalogued as Messier 20 or M20 and as NGC 6514) is an H II region in the north-west of Sagittarius in a star-forming region.
The Trifid is divided into three lobes of red Emission nebula, also it has a blue reflection nebula at the top, and the dark nebula are what divides the 3 red lobes. This is a fantastic combination of Emission, Reflection, and Dark nebula along with the associated star cluster.
It was discovered by Charles Messier on June 5, 1764.
This beautiful Nebula is 4,100 light years from Earth, and spans 42 light years across.
Captured at my Observatories in JBSPO on 06-18-2022 with my TPO 12” F4 Newtonian Reflector telescope, Bisque ME Mount, HAP Modified Canon 6D DSLR Camera, 30 min total exposure time. Processing in DSS, Nebulosity, and Adobe CS 2021.
