Messier 24, the Sagittarius Star Cloud - Redo

The recent cloudy weather has driven me to go back into my archives and re-evaluate my older images. Here is a redo of Messier 24, the Sagittarius Star Cloud.

Messier 24, the Sagittarius Star Cloud; E-200; 20x120
This version of the image has been cropped to highlight the more interesting areas. The image file is rather large (just over 2 MB), so be warned if you try to view the full-size version.

I plan on re-imaging this object when I get the chance. I'm pretty sure that I can bring out more stars from the cloud, and more detail on the dark nebulae.

Incidentally, the background image that I am currently using for the blog is a low-res version of the image above.
