Description

Elephant's Trunk Nebula taken at Bald Mountain Pass in the High Uintah Mountains in Utah. I have reprocessed this data using a new technique i have been experimenting with where i process the stars and the nebula separately using straton software to separate the stars.

On this 4th revision, i have worked relentlessly on the stars in this image. I feel im getting closer to what i envision, but i still have alot to learn. Oh yes, no more diffraction spikes lol
