Description

This is my first image of a Dark Nebula, Barnard 228, Aka 'Dark Wolf Nebula'. This nebula contains large amount of obscuring dust within the molecular cloud in the constellation of Lupus (the wolf ) and lies at a distance of about 500 light years.

Revision B: Complete reprocess with Photoshop Lab color

In this revision stars are less saturated and smaller and their colors are much better all over the image. I also think the dust color is more correct.

Thanks for watching, Hope you like it.
