Hey ITaYdAvE, the image Mike has used is from Nasa. The black step in the upper right is how the image is at Nasa site. Mike has added the stars in that area as orig is all black. If the loosely paint black is what incited your comment, I would assume Mike was trying to soften the harshness of the step. Many images at Nasa site, for whatever reason, are cut cropped like this.

Thank you for the help, Cavan1. I had hoped the clarity would be better as I located a 1900x1700 photo from NASA and downsized it to 1280x1024. Apparently, this is how this particular Nebula appears, as I checked out the clarity from many photos of the same picture. I am an Astronomy buff, and the grandeur of this particular nebula, to me, is 'awe' inspiring

The area cropped is from a mosaic of images. Over long exposure times they are put together to form the whole. I too am an astronomy buff but my main thing is the physics behind it. Try the space.com site, they have updated images and celestial paintings by various artists. I recommend Little4 gas giant or Little4 nebula by Bret Little, they're quite awesome.
