Finally had a clear night, so I was able to get the OIII data I needed for this image. I had uploaded one copy a few weeks ago, but AstroBin had some issues, and had to go to a backup from the prior day, so that copy was lost. Actually, that's fine, since the OIII data was not too good, and I was not that happy with the final image.

Anyway, here's my Bicolored Crescent.
