About this image

I chose to use short exposures here as the nebula is largely defined by the absence of stars compared to a densely populated surround. Long subs would have resulted in more bloated and saturated stars. A more exacting strategy might be to combine with some longer subs to get the texture within the nebula... Acquired in Voyager and processed in PI.
