Notes: This is a reprocessed image from 7/5/08 with star color added from RsGB images taken on 7/9/08. For the nebula the Ha and OIII images were mapped to the RGB channels as Ha for red, OIII as green and OIII as blue.

To me it's quite an improvement in the image. Look at the old image below.

Thank you! I really appreciate your feedback.

Like you, I'm a toy collector. Only instead of Star Wars collectables I like to accumulate tin toy robots. :>))

Oh wow...I do like Tin toy robots too! Cheers Cheers!
I've only have a few remakes(no vintage) and started collecting a couple of months ago. Here the link to my robot collection :
