This image was inspired by a wonder version of the same targets by Juan Lozano that can be found here: I used my new ASI1600MM-Pro for the luminance data, and captured the RGB with my ASI294MC-Pro. With galaxies being my favorite subject to image this region of the sky makes a great target with so many tiny ones plus NGC891 to anchor it.
