Well this is a first for the NSO. Congratulations to Rune Matthijssens (rune_astrostuff on Instagram) for winning (for the second month in a row!) our January 2021 Image of the Month competition. I don't think this has ever happened before.

Taken with the Liverpool telescope wich is a 2 meter aperture Ritchey-Chrétien scope in La Palma.
I took every sub of Red, Green, Blue an HA from there website wich is free to dowload and process among with other great objects.

The image is RGB with the HA image as Luminance.
