Once you see it, it can never be unseen)))

Captured remotely using Telescope #3 (ASA-N D = 0.5m f/3.8, FLI ProLine 16803) system of ChileScope observatory, over 3 imaging sessions carried out on Dec 23, & 24 2020 and Jan 10, 2021.

The color scheme achieved by mapping Ha, OIII, B exposures to RGB channels, followed by the photometric calibration procedure done with PixInsight, applied to whole field.
