Description: I've learned a lot since I uploaded the first version of this image. I re-stacked the original FITs using Affinity Photo, reduced image noise, and adjusted levels to soften the stars and bring out a more dynamic colour in the nebula.

Description: I adjusted this revision very slightly to make the stars slightly 'warmer', and to reduce the enhancement on the 'Mystery Object'.

Description: Re-stacked and post-processed using Affinity Photo - applying the same adjustments as I did for the image of the Helix Nebula I took exactly a year later :)

This is work in progress - the image needs further work to harmonise the background stars.
