Charles,

Wonderful image :smash:

I want to know if using H-Alpha filter with narrower band width, e.g. 5nm, would the exposure time of each raw frame became very long :confused:

Thanks guys for the comments. As to the exposure time yes it increases considerably. As an example I normally shoot the horsehead at 7 minutes with a red filter. Using Ha I shoot at 15 minutes. I shot the one posted at ten minutes but I really should had gone for 15 minutes. I'm trying to shoot the Christmas Tree tonight between the clouds and I'm shooting it at 15 minutes each. I hope to get at least a hours worth but I do not think I'm going to get it tonight with the clouds.

Dave, you did a good job on the Rosette Nebular considering the equipment you used.

Just took a look at the DSO images. I'm simply lost for words to describe the beauty of those images. We're truly in the presence of great astrophotographers!

Very nice Pelican Suk, I thought the Pelican didn't rise until about 4 AM. Must have not gone to bed that night!
