Steve Knight's excellent image was bumped from this slot due to an inconvenient lunar eclipse.  So we now reinstate it for week five so members can enjoy the wealth of detail in this special region of our sky.  We are used to seeing "up close and personal" images of specific objects, so sometimes it is nice to stand back and see the wider sky, especially when it shows an object in the way it would appear if only our eyes could "see" across a wider spectral range.
