One target: Two views.

This is Messier 16 also known as the ‘Eagle Nebula’. Wide field in small telescopes the associated star cluster is the object to view but with larger aperture the Pillars of Creation can be glimpsed. The left hand image was taken using an Equinox 80ED refractor and GPCAM 290C camera and the right hand image is a close up using the StarGate 500 and GPCAM 290C camera.
