The "Bug Nebula", NGC6302 as an animation

The animation is made by splitting the original 2D-image to a layers by the image content. Layers are then taken to a 3D-modeling software, "TrueSpace", and projected to a 3D-surfaces and animated to a movie file.
Stars are placed to Z-axel by apparent brightness , brighter ones are closer.

Original images and imaging details can be found here:
