A thought on the object, too; there is a lightbeam-like feature starting at the image centre and heading left and slightly downwards. I don't recall seeing anything quite like this before and wonder about the astrophysics.

Olly - found this on the web:

I had also wondered this too Olly, it shows up in abundance in other images too and extends way out of the field of view I have in a arc. As to what it is I have no idea, but it seems to be opaque as I see structure in the gas clouds coming through from behind.

A real masterpiece! Could the lightbeam be molecular gas associated with stars nearby, interacting with stellar winds? Link coming soon to a paper I did see earlier.

Found it! http://arxiv.org/pdf/1002.4612.pdf N'joy!
