RCW 85 is a small but extremely interesting emission nebula in the constellation of  Centaurus.  The main body of the nebula is primarily composed of hydrogen-alpha emission data, however the bright core in the tip is visible in broadband RGB data. The images was completed using data from a remote hosting facility in Chile.  The image is part of the Flaming Sky showcase.
