Description

This wide field of view reveals a spectacular setting for the Cone Nebula (at the center of the image). The image uses all three narrowband channels, mixed in Pixelmath to create interesting hues and contrasts in the objects of interest. The star field was processed separately for realistic star sizes and colors.
