Looks great love how you tamed the core yet revealed a lot of the surrounding nebulosity, great work!

Tony,
Excellent image with good contrast and detail
Well processed to perfectly expose the trap
A tad more blue bias , saturation and sharpening might expose a bit more in the outer regions
Well done !!!
Should be posted below in Deep Space section IMO
