Was happy that we got around to this at DSW. The wide field of view offered by the RH-305 and 16803 was a perfect match for this target to include both the Western Veil and the Triangle. Just such a rich area. I have sadly been slowing down on my images due to life lately, but hopefully they start to kick back up again soon! I am getting rusty with PI!

Revision: There was just something wrong with the first version of the image, it seemed to flat and lifeless. Hopefully this revision makes it stand out a bit more
