NGC 1491 after the party (Halifax)

It looked like after the observatory tour and star party for humans, the BGO robot resumed its imaging campaigns. For me, it acquired NGC 1491. A diffuse nebula in Perseus. Another of the RASC Finest NGCs. A curious shape. I can see hints of things far from the central object.
