Description

This is a wide field view of the Eagle Nebula taken from my Tucson backyard. As the city of Tucson is south of my home, I am imaging in the worst of my light polluted skies. So, this image is also a test of how well narrow band imaging will help me deal with light pollution. I processed the Eagle Nebula in two pallets: the standard Hubble palette and a more natural looking palette. I also experimented with a different crop suggested by a friend. I think the Hubble palette brings out more detail, but I like the look of the natural palette.
