This is a vastly improved (in my opinion) take on the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex. The previous image of it I had taken was one night's data and I couldn't stop feeling it was not great...okay, but not what I wanted. So I took 4 nights of data and tried to stack the best of them, then reprocessed with the superior data. THIS is more what I had wanted in the first place.
