That's a beauty! Seems like there is some color gradients in the image? Could also be part of the object, difficult to say sometimes. 🙂

Thanks.

You're absolutely right. I've seen very different pictures of Cone nebula, it's located in a very wide nebulosity, which can be noticed either with 3.5nm narrowband filters or very long time exposures. In a bortle9 I could shoot max. 160seconds with RGB filters, so these gradients are possibly a light pollution, which I do not want to work hardly, in the name of not loosing some real nebulosity details.

Understood, you can correct for that pretty good usually, but if it indeed is not your preference for the other area's, that's fine as well of course. 🙂 Very nice anyway!
