Here is a remarkably beautiful emission nebula which lives in the shadow of its better known neighbor M-16.
I managed to frame both of them nicely recently with the TMB-92 refractor. This is a stack of 2 x 3 min exposures shot at ISO 6400 with the Canon 6D and an IDAS LPS-V4 filter. M-16 is on the right.
