Constellation Crux and Coalsack Nebula (C99) (Re-Work)

In April 2021 I posted here a new version of a capture made in July, 2020. Well, I was not entirely happy.

Then, I decided to do a new version. This means that the picture I’m posting today is at least the 3rd version of the same data. Ok, ok, sorry. I won’t be stalling. Here is the new (And hopefully the last) version:

Crux and Coalsack Nebula (C99)

Also, I made an annotated version, with the astrometric solution. What are your thoughts?
