Tarantula processed for nebulosity

The original was one of the first HDR images produced of an astronomical object. The background makes interesting reading and can be found on this website.
I have processed the image to bring out the fine details of nebulosity which are very hard to appreciate in the original.
If you like to try, you can see it in stunning 3D using the method I outlined in my previously released picture Tom_Caldwell_8 for RCW49. After about a minute the colours come through and the effect can be breathtaking.
