    I captured this picture at the ITV Telescope Event Vogelsberg.
    We were blessed with above average to good seeing and a wonderful clear sky at bortle 3.
    I'm just amazed what a significant difference a dark sky does to your RGB captures, I could never get such data at my light pulluted backyard.

    Anyways I hope you enjoy my version of the Iris Nebula.
