Here we have a look at the Soul Nebula in this two-pane mosaic from my test data @ITU.
The Soul Nebula is big, relatively bright and has some nice detail but despite my best efforts, it has been my nemesis, no matter what I tried I could not process a decent version. So in an attempt to rectify that here is my latest offering, its also nice to see just how far I have come in a little over 3 years, looking back at my earlier (hideous) version it demonstrates where a little hard work can take you :)
Hope you enjoy.
