Description

This is my first attempt at imaging a dark nebula. It's part of the Dark Wolf Nebula in Lupus but to me this small part looks more like an eagle if anything. I've enjoyed imaging a dark nebula, nice to do something new and it was challenging to process... I'm sure I have much to learn when it comes to processing these.
