This was how M17 or the Omega nebula presented itself to my scope last night.

Nice 3D effect you caught there. I must insist that you give your observatory/ telescope house/ concrete slab a fancy or even fanciful  name. "Backyard" doesn't gel with this level of output any more.

BTW, this nebula is the seat of the famous pillars of creation, is it not?

Yes, M16 is the famous Hubble picture, The Pillars of Creation. The observatory is still without a roof and door. I did manage to put a concrete floor in so I suppose it should be called a shelter or something at this point.
