Description

RCW61
This one is a part of the running chicken nebula.
It is very strong in SII but there is not very much OIII except for the part around HD100099.
On the left side there is also a small reflection nebula, unfortunately i could not find its designation.
The image is a SHO taken during the last full moon period.
I must admit it was quite difficult to process and I did not remove the greens as it gets very one dimensional then.
Hope you like it.
Wolfgang
