I'm not completely satisfied by this image, I wish I had more time for more than 10 hours.
I decided to go "the hard way" in RGB mode, avoiding LRGB. Not sure, from my light-polluted backyard (smq 18.5) and during this always-cloudy-darn-summer, this was the right choice.
Anyways, a nice image; I'll do better next year.
