Messier 78 | NGC 2068

That's one of my favorite regions in the night sky. Lots of intricacy nebulae with many luminosity and color nuances.

Took me a very long time to process this image since it has only 2 hours of total exposure time. I took the challenge to carve for the most faint nebulosity available in it's luminance channel.

Filters and exposure time:

.Luminance : 3x600"
.Red: 3x600"
.Green: 3x600"
.Ble: 3x600"

Total exposure: 2 hours
