Comments: The data for this image was obtained by Jim Misti of Misti Mountain Observatory in Arizona. I was allowed by him to process his data into this final result. This image shows the central region of M8. The many turbulent gas clouds are visible along with gas rifts and Bok globules (star forming regions). A wider field of view taken in H-alpha light may be seen here.
