      Description

      Here we have something way outside my comfort area - the new 135mm Rokinon as DSW offering some great widefield data. I have enhanced the trunk area with the addition of some earlier data collection on the FSQ.

      Great to see some objects in the full glory without the need for long acquisition mosaics - the addition of the higher res data provides the detail in the key areas. That said seeing the subtle background nebulosity and surrounding dark nebula makes for an enjoyable image - hope you like.

      Rev B - a few small revisions around core.

      Rev c - Minor saturation adjustment and removed some star halos. That's all on this one
