Here is my first image in LRGB since my return after some time out.
Some nice data to play with from SSRO - spent a lot of time working on the layers of colour and tone to try and provide as many perceived details as possible.
Plate solving does not seem to recognise this area - maybe it is too busy!
There are a plethora of features from the main blue reflection nebulae a variable nebula, some dark nebula and for good measure some Herbig-Haro objects.
Hope you enjoy.
