Red Lion

Lion http://astrojolo.blogspot.com/2015/09/as-faint-as-lion.html has gained some color. It is only 3x40 minutes of each RGB channels added, and hydrogen light colored with red. No actually the true or real colors, but close to (if you only that human eye is blind for faint red color nebulosity).
