Narrowband bi-colour  image. The total integration time is  3.7 hours which is enough to bring out some detail in the 'inner region', but not enough (at least from my suburban location) to show the (less often noted) outer nebulosity very well; it's just starting to become visible in the lower left.

A stunning image showing detail in the nebula I've never seen before.
