You know this doesn't look like a jellyfish, I think it looks morel like a chickpea. I call it the Hummus nebula :) ... This is only in H-Alpha. I was going to do a mosiac on it, but then decided to scrap the idea and make this my first project with my new WO refractor which gives me a much better field of view on the object. Then the clouds rolled in ... I swear someone up there doesn't want me to use this new scope. In any case I played with false color for the H-Alpha and I really loved how it came out so I'm posting, sorry in advance but likely my next post will also be the same Hummus nebula.
