Different framing of the previous image , it completly changes the way the eyes look at it , amazing !

I reworked completly the image and ShO mix, with RGB stars, and try to focus on the head of the lion where all nice details can be seen in the nodules and clouds?
Hope you like it better!

I had this project in mind for a long time (like the the Veil nebula) this lion Nebula is a large one , it really needs a wide field setup.
With the new 24x26 CMOS, I thought it was a good time to have a try !
