Perhaps the Eagle Nebula is one of those targets that needs no introduction. The Hubble "Pillars of Creation" image made this area instantly recognizable, even to those not skilled in the art. This image is comprised of approximately 7 hours of exposure through narrowband filters to produce a false-color rendition in the hubble palette.
