Description

This image was acquired during two separate trips to my dark sky site in south eastern Arizona over two months time. My goal was to capture and reproduce the faint dust surrounding the bright reflection nebula.

Uploaded a revision where I removed a bit of a green cast that was present in my original version of this image. I also boosted the saturation slightly. I much prefer the revision.
