A single exposure exposing the tenuous whispy exterior means grossly over exposing the trapezium and the neblousity around it. A good friend of mine, Chris from Alabama, USA, explained to me how some people have taken different exposure times and then nested the shorter exposures inside the over exposed parts of the longer exposures.
