Description

I added a bit of H-alpha data to give more detail to a previous image. You can't have too much data or detail. The image includes a wide-field insert, complements of Íñigo Gamarra ( his original image link: https://www.astrobin.com/2sg0kg/G/?nc=), that gives more context to The Butterfly Nebula. This is the second image where I have used this widefield image to better show location.
