Hi all,

 

I'd like to share my recent shot on SH2-263, an IMO less visited target but equally interesting as many other fellow objects in Orion region. I particularly like the blending of red and blue colors.

Thanks for viewing and clear skies!

Very nice photo.!  I too like the blending of Ha clouds mixed with the reflection nebula around this region.I see where they get the name, Strawberry Nebula.  Thanks for the heads up on this interesting nebula--that is overlooked. I will try to spot it tomorrow night with my scope -visually. Very straight forward to location being above bellatrix. I will let you know what I see, on this interesting region.

 

 Sincerely Dennis

An updated version here: slightly tuned to a more natural "RGB" tone, while let the H-alpha data to boost up the surrounding clouds; also tune down the background dust to a more "colder" tone. C&C welcomed!
