Good day astrobin!, Here is my rendition of this amazing object that I've imaged last year but with several problemas of camera tilt, and low amount of total integration. This year I've dedicated 19 h of capturing this beautiful nebula.
From my skies bortle 9 it is always dificult to get a good SNR, so it was a challenge as always.

Hope you like it, clear skies!!!
