I took a chance on a foggy night and made the trip up to my dark sky site earlier this week. I ended up getting another hour of data on the Iris Nebula before I was completely clouded over. I've probably processed this photo
about 10 times now, it has been very challenging. Here is the latest re-process. Your comments, questions and critiques are always appreciated:)

Oh T-Dogg, well done on this. Took a chance and it paid off in spades.

Thank you for the comments guys. Yes Marc, the contrast in the dusty areas was the hardest part! I will experiment with selective colour once I put more time on this.

Nice job on the dusty pic Trevor. It's always a pain to get good contrast between the background/dust (to me anyways). Did you use selective color at all--I find it to be a help (after a good amount of trial+error w/it). Cool Pic! Marc PS 10x's, that's all, that's a quick job lol
