Thanks goes out to Manuel for making his data available!

Though I'm happy with this particular iteration, after receiving some feedback I am working on others. Please feel free to criticize and make any suggestions for improvement.

Thank you for stopping on by.

2nd Revision: Employed an iterative HDRMT to target the brightness in the upper left region of the nebula to decrease the "overcooked" look it had and to further enhance contrast in the central regions. Thank you goes out to Manuel, Terry and Madratter for confirming it.
