Greetings.  The Bat Nebula is part of the Eastern Veil and is rarely imaged alone.  This is 10 hours total of Ha and Oiii captured during a near full moon, full details on AB.  Thanks for looking.

I just checked out the full-size image on The Bin.  Wonderful detail you've captured in the filaments.  Nicely done!

Thanks.  I originally used the straight Ha for luminance but it lacked punch so I did a 50/50 blend of Ha and Oiii to create a synthetic luminance to make the filaments stand out.
