The Tarantula Nebula ( NGC 2070) is an H II region in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
Because of that - it is a surprisingly hard object to process - it is embedded in a few million stars!
The challenge was to show both the nebula and the surrounding stars - especially the young blue stars forming within it.
