Here is my version of the wizard nebula. Because of nearly full moonlight ,OIII was quite difficult. I also tested a new Baader filter H alpha 7nm, which I am quite happy with. In recent time, I liked the wizard not very much, but with some resolution you can find some interesting parts in it. For example the dome, which you will find immediately and there is a showing hand with a tiny star on the finger tip a little lower.
