A "quick" work on NGC6992. This is a WiP. Clouds (again) ruined the imaging session and then the moon showed up... I spent a lot of time on processing and this is the best "and natural" I can do. You can thank the grocery store for the lower right corner. The forecasts for this weekend are great, so I hope to add 2-3 hours to the thing :D

I love autoguiding! With only 1h35 in 300s images, I have a more detailed (AND BLUE!!!!) and "natural" overall picture than the picture I made in 2014 (75x 120s, without autoguiding).
