Description

I've captured this target before, but I feel I had less than adequate acquisition and over processed the image to compensate. So this round I attempted to show it more justice, without overdoing it. This is the result of 6 hours of data and processed to the Hubble Color Pallette, with the best details of the iconic pillars I've captured to date.
