“Pillars of Creation” (!)

Here is a bit of fun:

I thought I would amuse myself by making an image from the Eagle nebula ( M16) image I posted the other day that was the same field as the famous Hubble “Pillars of Creation” picture.

Here it is in the original colour, then colourised in a crude simulation of the Hubble palette, followed by the Hubble image. (Don’t worry, Andy, the NASA image isn’t copyrighted!).

I wonder if I could commission a space mission to correct my optics!?
