    The night of 8-15 was pretty good for observing and with the moon absent good for some astrophotography. I obtained a fairly good image of M17 the Omega Nebula in Sagittarius. I rotated the image below to approximate the orientation of many images online. At the eyepiece M17 was fairly easy to see at low power as a tilted, whitish rectangular shape in a very starry field.
