The astronomical darkness hasn't arrived yet, up here 65N, and I don't have any equipments to continue my imaging work. Due to that, I have done some reprocessing of older material of mine. An other reason is to keep up my processing skills.

Sometimes I'm publishing experimental starless versions of my astronomical images. They'll show the actual nebula better and have a kind of mystique feel.
Human brains has a tendency to form some quasi logical shapes out of the cloud of random dots, like stars in this case. Without stars, the shapes in a gas cloud stands out much better.

I have shot many targets with a several focal lengths and instruments.
Due to that, I'm able to publish some of my photos as an image set, with a different field of view and detail levels. The fractal nature of our universe stands out nicely by this way and it will make the orientation more easy.

Note. an apparent size of the Moon is marked as a circle.
Moon has an angular diameter of ~0,5 degrees, that's ~30 arc minutes.
