Description

I reprocessed my image that I took last night. I like both images so I decided to post this as a separate image instead of doing a revision to my previous image. I was able to bring out a little more detail in the nebula. I also tried to achieve a more subdued background in this image than I did with the previous image. It's funny how different an image can be depending on where you take the processing.
