Short project with this seldomly imaged but sweet planetary nebula in Orion. Image taken with ASI1600 mmc at the CEDES cassegrain of Sternwarte Mirasteilas @ full focal length (9000 mm). RGB 10 x 30 s gain 0 each, Luminance 30 x 30 s

Luminace channel bloated the stars, tried to reduce star size with morphological transform in Pixinsight. Next time I will use shorter exposures.
