I chose this orientation (N left) because it highlights the apparitions: The Lagoon Nebula as Frankenstein's head and shoulders, repleat with stitched neck, and the dust lanes of the Trifid Nebula highlighting the outline of the three cherubs. Only 11 minutes of data, but by far my best image (the high-res view is much nicer).
