Matt BenDaniel took this great color photograph of the Swan or Omega Nebula M17, on May 24, 2001 from Pearce, Arizona, using an autoguided Astro-Physics 130 EDF refractor telescope. It is a 90-minute exposure, taken at f/6.7, on hpered Kodak PPF 400 film. The image was cropped from a larger one of the whole M16-M17 region.

This CCD image of the Omega Nebula M17 was obtained with their Astro Physics EDF 152mm f/7.5 refractor by Brad Wallis and Robert Provin who kindly contributed them to our database. Three 10-minute exposures with SBIG ST-7 CCD camera, with minus-IR and No. 25 (red) filter, have been combined to create this picture.
Great color image of the Omega Nebula M17, also by Brad Wallis and Robert Provin. It is a 20 minutes exposure on (unhypered) Fujicolor Super G-800+. 155mm f/7 Astro-Physics EDF refractor.

The Swan or Omega Nebula M17 with a southern hemisphere 'flavour'. This image was obtained by Ian Wallis with a Meade LX-50 10" SC telescope at f/10 on 35mm Kodak EGP-400 negative film at the Schmidt-Cassegrain focus, exposed 7 minutes. It was taken in July 1999 from a suburban location in Perth, Western Australia. Visual limiting magnitude was about 5.2.
James Phan created this image of the Omega or Swan Nebula, M17, during an astronomy camp in Tishonomingo, Oklahoma. He took this photo with the 12-1/2 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain of Randy Black; it was a computerized system with a CCD camera.
