Hubble Vs Ceravolo   Hourglass

A comparison between my Ceravolo 300 Astrograph at f/9 (2700mm focal length) and the mighty Hubble space telescope. The object is the Hourglass Nebula in M8. It's a tiny object, about 25 x 15 arcsec. Conditions weren't great with dubious seeing and thin clouds. This is a crop of a Ha image; 6 x 10 minute subs, Not bad considering the difference in cost :)
