Once more... A field I've planned to make and that is now reality. Another goal achieved.
Two jewels in the night I am pleased to contemplate, Staring at each other and separated by a large field of grey creamy dust.
Reflexion and emission in a same field is always a dream to my eyes.

I imaged Atik region at the same period but with a different focal and it reveals here a far more wide bluewish reflexion nebula I could expect.
