This image was taken during the September 2019 new moon at the OkieTex star Party and then finished at Rusty's RV Range in SW New Mexico. Both site offered good imaging conditions. Most images of this object seem to be taken using narrow band filters and using a variety of pallettes. This is just a straight forward LRGB image.
