Very difficult one to process I found.
This is my first look but might return and have another go at this one.
Rev B - Just rotated so you can see the eagle head more clearly.
LBN 777 (also known as Baby Eagle or Vulture Head Nebula) is part of the Taurus Molecular Cloud, a very dim object to image with low density gas and dust distribution. The dust particles are large and the effects of gravity can force them to collate in bok globules, which when dense enough and heated will form new stars. LBN777 is one of the nearest molecular clouds to us located about 400 light years away from Earth. The external part of LBN777 is illuminated by the surrounding stars and can be seen as a very faint reflection nebula. Its dense inner part is catalogued as a dark nebula B 207. - Various annotated
