The area surrounding the Pleiades Star Cluster apart from having nebulae has a lot of brown dust, I was in a bit of a hurry (as usual) when I first processed my original image here www.flickr.com/photos/terryhancock/4994564079/ and thinking the brown was noise and gradient I subtracted it from the image by mistake so I decided to reprocess it.
