Description

I really liked the color treatment of Marcel Drechsler and Artūras Medvedevas' Pacman images so I thought I might try it out. Not nearly as good as the two images mentioned. Can't seem to bring out the fainter nebulosity that well. Perhaps, I need to get a faster scope and/or move to a darker location. Anyway, please enjoy my rendition.
