Re: Winter project - Cradle of Starbirth

Really nice Roland and one of my favorites too, in fact, the very first deep sky object I saw with my first telescope, a Sears 2" F11 achromat.

I've noticed that you and other skilled imagers manage to bring out a decided 3D effect on this nebula, almost like I'm peering down into it.

Just got around to processing my winter project. Images were taken back in February on one bitter cold clear night at our northern Illinois observatory.
This much-photographed object is still one of my favorites of the winter sky. It brings back fond memories of my youth, first observing it with a small 30mm achromat lens when I lived in Canada.
