I Acquired this data in the summer of 2013 and have never made a decent try at processing it. Nor have I posted it before. It is one of the most difficult objects to process (at least for me) because the veil is so dim and sparse amongst the bright star field. Not to mention I have 'one shot color data'. Well, with a few more tricks up my sleeve, i came up with this far LOL. Of course, (like all of us) I will keep trying and trying.

Also, I want to thank all of you who have been following me and clicking the like button on my images, I am humbled by you, you folks are so talented. Mahalo and Aloha!
