I also just processed my M78 from a couple years ago, so I could include in my 2021 calendar. Looks similar to yours.
About 3 hours total, I think.

It seems everyone is processing data from our period of clear skies and minimal moon at DSNM. Here's another just-completed project from our observatory - the LRO (LoBo Robotic Observatory, LoBo being both the New Mexico mascot and short for Longmont/Boulder). Same setup - CDK14 scope, ASI 6200MM camera, one hour each R, G, and B filters.
NGC 2071 is the upper reflection nebula and the red glow at the top is the southern-most portion of Barnard's loop. This is one of my favorite targets, and a pleasure to observe from our dark-sky community!
