Description

Image processed using a different Pixelmath combination to display the nebula in a "natural" palette.

I definitely prefer this image in the classic Hubble palette, but also the "natural" Version has a nice touch. Make sure to check out the Hubble version here: Soul Nebula in SHO and tell me which version you prefer.
