Hey, I'm shooting M16 too! Single 30 minute exposure on the H-a filter. Would love 30 of these. :)

The Eagle Nebula is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Scutum, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Chéseaux in 1745-46. Both the "Eagle" and the "Star Queen" refer to visual impressions of the dark silhouette near the center of the nebula, an area made famous as the "Pillars of Creation" photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope. The nebula contains several active star-forming gas and dust regions, including the Pillars of Creation.
