About this image

Gosh it's been cloudy of late.  Fortunately I got some shots in on my trip to Devon at the end of May.  In the dark I mistakenly set the lens to f/4 rather than a faster setting.  70 mins of data rendered in a false Hubble Palette which works well on these targets.  Like the recent close up of the Pelican I posted I've oriented the image to enhance the view of the dark dust column L935.
