I've only included the Lagoon Nebula in wide-angle shots of the Milky Way, so I decided to see what it would look like through my 150-600 lens at 600mm. It came out better than I expected through all the light pollution in my area. I stacked 103 shots to get this.

Nice Roy! That lens does a decent job for being a zoom. I shot quite a few targets with mine.

I thought it might be more interesting to include the Trifid Nebula in the shot with the Lagoon Nebula. For this one, I stacked 242 light images taken at 15 seconds, each, for a total of 1 hour, 30 seconds. When post-processing the first one, I spent a lot of time trying to get rid of the overall red cast to the image... only to find out that it's supposed to be there! So for this one, I took a lot more exposures to try to get more of the red gas to show up.
