About this image

Very large. In two separate sections, separated by dark nebulosity. The eastern half is shaped like a question mark. This section has two distinctly brighter regions within it. The western half is smaller and shaped like a reversed 'D'. There was some small improvement with an Hβ filter, but as the filter was 2" and the eyepiece 1.25", this was hard to use.
