Dust ... backlit dust ... must examine reddening curve. Some colleagues keep telling me there must be a 12-step program for this kind of mania. (And all I had to do was give them some descriptive comments and text after all the image processing was done). Is that blue glow foreground starlight, scattering, or an odd dust population?

by the BA's comments.
