Well known emission nebula in Cygnus constellation.

Finally after few weeks I've managed to test my new AZ EQ6 mount under fairly good sky in Firle area.

Heavier than HEQ5Pro but more sturdy and well machined mount.

I have added Hydrogen Alpha frames to the RGB one and slightly tweaked the colors.
Now is 120 minutes of color and 60 minutes of H-alpha exposures.
