Yes, the date is 2016. I have not posted my older images but James Dawson suggested I should put this one on. It was my first LRGB image with my, then new, IMG2PRO. The subs were captured with a trial version of Sequence Generator Pro on 27 May, 4, 5 and 6 June last year. Processing in Pixinsight and tweaked in Photoshop CS2.
