    After a long time I finally completed a new image from my private observatory.
    This is a Narrowband bicolor image (Ha OIII OIII) with RGB data only for the star color.
    A lot of exposure, about 37h (53x1800" Ha, 20x1800" OIII, 6x120" RGB stars), managed by Voyager Astrophotography Automation Software and Viking.
