Description

This is an object I have always wanted to work on... and finally after a few decades I got my chance! I purchased time on Telescope Live and acquired this image a few months ago. This is the kind of object for which you will find a large spectrum of "renderings." I feel I was true to my aesthetic here, but as this is AB, it is a good place to visit the work of others and see how others approach the subject.

I utilized many of the newer techniques that are now available in PixInsight. In particular, HDRMT was important here obviously. 

Please remember, if you enjoy seeing these images here, please follow! This is certainly the place I do this for eyeballs on the screen. :0

Sincerely,
Adam
