Flame on! Love the color, I'm just surprised there wasn't a bit more contrast in the main nebulosity. Good stuff!

Thanks Josh,
high praise coming from you.

I used the HDRMultiscale Transform twice.  First at an 8 layer setting with a Median Transform.  The second was set at 4 layers w/o the Median Transform.  This brought out a lot of detail in the "fish head" part of the nebula, but also dampened the brightness somewhat.

Did you use my favorite, Local Histogram Equalization? <grin>
