Description

I planned on capturing twice as many subs, but unexpected low clouds delayed the start of my imaging run by two hours. I am surprised by how much nebulosity in this low-surface-brightness target was captured by my stock DSLR with only two hours of integration time.

B

I worked hard to eliminate some of the noise in the previous version while retaining as much of the nebulosity as I could.

C

More work to highlight the nebulosity.

D

I sharpened the brighter stars a bit, enhanced the nebula another increment, and adjusted the color of the nebulosity a bit.
