M8 and M20, The Lagoon and Trifid Nebulae

My best astrophoto to date! I'm VERY proud of this image. I can zoom it up to 250% and the stars retain their focus almost perfectly....WOW! This is still near the center of our own Milky Way, and numerous other deep sky objects appear such as the tight little cluster of stars near the Trifid which is I believe M28, and opposite these two nebulae are a couple other star clusters showing up in very yellowish color indicating older stars.
