Some thoughts to this image:

First I thought that the resolving quality of my image is quite bad. The nebula is a pretty blurry and detailless area. But when I zoomed it up extremly ... I suddenly noticed, that there are visible faint structures, little bit washed but recognizable filaments. Now I'm not absolutely shure ... are they real or are artefacts? The comparable images in the internet are not of better quality than my 12"-Newton-result. What do you think?
