Here’s What John Had to Say about the image
This is a very challenging and faint object to photograph, the OIII squid you see inside the flying bat was only discovered in 2011. The fact that we are able to now bring out that object in such detail with amateur equipment is amazing. They almost say it can’t be done but here it is. My goal for the challenge was to try and bring out as much detail of the squid as possible.
