“Trifid”, which means split into three, really undersells the chaos of this multicoloured nebula cloud. I know I’ve photographed this a few times but I think this year turned out best so far. It was actually meant to be a “test” shot after collimating my telescope properly! I’ve made the image fairly large so you can zoom in and go for a fly if you want.
