    Fantastic image, Matt. I love the "old-fashioned" black and white images so much. They remind me of my childhood days of visiting the Adler Planetarium in Chicago and wandering around their gallery looking at pictures just like this one. Not as good as this one, though.

    Thanks Dick! You know, there is definitely something about straight up black & white images. Sometimes detail gets lost in the color. I have to agree with you.

    Went back and added the color data to this....also included a 1/2 teaspoon of hydrogen-alpha.
