This was my first moonless clear night this year, but a little bit windy and cold. I enjoyed it very much with manly observing. The Witches Broom is just a souvenir. The stars are not perfect because of the windblows.

Slightly change in color - reduced the stars and pushed the nebula a bit

Oh boy, this was a hard nut to crack. This morning I notized that I removed too many stars to bring the nebula out. So I tried to bring a few of them back. Now it's "FINAL"
