Description

I had been waiting for a year or more to take a decent picture of this region. My first attempt was hastily done due to constant clouds. I should have exercised restraint and waiting until I got more data, but I kept it on my profile for posterity. You can scroll down in my gallery to see what I'm talking about. This current version is much better. I plan to do a narrow FOV version of it at some point.

Description: I reprocessed it from scratch and went with a more red/blue color palette. I like this one better, but I'll keep the first one for posterity.
