Description

NGC 2261
Hubble´s variable nebula.
I thought this one would be an easy target but it took me three processing runs to get it to at least what I think is ok.
There is a lot of faint stuff in the background, but NGC 2261 itself has such a huge dynamic range that it is very difficult to show .
LRGB 120 60 60 60 min.
I hope you enjoy it.
