In response to Nick's challenge! I hope to do better - only a short amount of time available between the sky darkening and  the Moon rising. Extreme measures used with the processing in terms of contrast enhancement. At least the dark nebula is visible, amongst other stuff (some real, some not). No chance of any visual sightings from here.... Autosave from DSS, plus two processed versions; final combo is just a screenshot.
