Description

Following the previous works, long integration time to reveal as many details as possible.

In fact, it's difficult to find the Pacman here... is more about the Sauron eye

Again more than 80 hours of integration time using the Hα-SII/OIII/OIII+rgb palette and some complex work on fine structures and details.
