G11/Gemini mount. The L subframes were 12 minutes binned 1x1, while the RGB subframes were 4 minutes
binned 2x2 resulting in the following total exposures L:R:G:B (min) = 552 : 72: 72: 72. This image is
displayed at 0.57 arc-seconds per pixel. Captured with Nebulosity, calibrated, sigma combined in Iris
