NGC2020 & NGC2014 in the Large Magellanic Galaxy . I have managed to extract some useful data from what originally had a horrible rainbow back ground with Star Tools. I love the wide colour differential of the 2 nebulae so close together. Thanks to Dr Hugh Ross for publishing a Hubble image of them which was then my inspiration .
