Complete rework of this HOB Image. Even this famous Messier object seems to be an easy target, it was quite difficult for me to process it into a direction, that I like. With this second version here, I am much happier than with the first, you still can find in my gallery. The halo around the nebula seems not to be possible from my light polluted backyard here near Frankfurt/M in Germany......Hope you like it too....CS, Christoph
