Lagoon Nebula in an Esprit 120

Here is an image of the Lagoon Nebula taken with my SkyWatcher Esprit 120. The conditions were so-so with slightly low transparency  and the target was 25 degrees above the horizon at best while the image was taken.

Processing This image was processed entirely in Images Plus. Calibration, stacking, statistical filter applied to reduce noise before stretching. Masked stretching and split star processing used to enhance the image. Masked noise reduction using a frequency domain lowpass filter applied to the DSO layer and then it was recombined with the star layer. Image binned 2 by 2. Final sharpening applied. Since the 60Da has on sensor dark suppression no darks were used in the calibration.
