The Eagle Nebula is known for the famous "Pillars of Creation" in the center. Overall, it kind of has the shape of an eagle. I see a human skull shape in the top part of the nebula. Even though I used a UHC filter for this, there didn't seem to be as much blue and green in the image as I expected. When I begin to use a mono camera and narrowband filters, this target is 100% of the list of targets.
