This is a very Hydrogen rich region, so have deliberately allowed some of the background nebulosity to show through.
To me it resembles a genie pouring out of the magic lamp!Ha – 11x1200secs

About this Nebula
At 5,500 light years distant, the Cat’s Paw nebula NGC 6334 is an emission nebula with a red colour that originates from an abundance of ionised hydrogen atoms. Alternatively known as the Bear Claw Nebula, stars nearly ten times the mass of our Sun have been born there in only the past few million years. Pictured here is a deep field image of the Cat’s Paw Nebula in light emitted by hydrogen, oxygen, and sulphur. (text from Apod).
No Pussyfooting is the debut studio album by the British duo Fripp & Eno, released in 1973. The first of three major collaborations between the musicians using early tape delay looping experiments and guitar techniques.
