Slooh Space Camera's Night Sky: Cosmic Photos by Amateur Astronomers

The Lagoon Nebula

Dave Larkin

Astrophotographer Dave Larkin used Slooh Space Telescope's Canary Island 20'' telescope to photograph the Lagoon Nebula. The nebula lies in the constellation of Sagittarius. Larkin writes: "What makes images so special from Slooh is the fact that I am in Australia using an on-line robotic telescope on the other side of the globe live from the Northern Hemisphere, and to also be able to process the data from the camera into an image from the comfort of my living room is just awesome."
