This is somewhat artsy experimental rendition of LDN 1250 nebula.

I decided to create starless version of my previous image, but it looked pretty boring. So I left some of the brightest stars and, since it looked artificial enough, I also gave it a full go with Star Spikes Pro.

I like its dreamy look - I imagine this is how some kid would imagine a picture of the night sky.

Hope you will like it!)

Data was acquired in 2015 and 2017, full acquisition information can be found under conventional rendition of this object.
