Description

It's been some time since I tried my luck with a starless variant of an image. :-) Very nebulous areas are of course a good place to get a better view of the actual structures. The more stars there are, the more difficult the whole thing becomes of course. And around Melotte 15 there are a lot of stars...

The results will hopefully speak for themselves. :-) In revision B I also added the version with all the stars. Try to blink between both of them to get all the fine details in the nebula.
