M45/Merope Nebulosity

One of many images I took while at the Mid-Atlantic Star Party (masp.org). I added the RGB frames together to make a synthetic L channel and treated this like an LRGB reduction. I used PIP to enhance the nebulosity and some subtle hi-pass filtering to emphasize the structure in the nebulosity.
