Description

Just for fun, ver.B is a starless one created in Photoshop.

Ver.C is a reprocessing in March 2021. I did not quite like the old processing in 2019, but I did not find an easy way to improve it. Now, thanks to StarNet, I can reach a better balance between the saturation of stars and nebulas.
