About this image

Some periodic error.

This replaces the previous image which had been heavily reprocessed in the (vain) hope of revealing the nebulosity near T Tauri. Unfortunately, detail was lost and the colour values changed.

This image has more standard processing and shows a "bow" in the green above (S) the main nebula.
