I can see the possibilities as well as yet more experimenting with processing smile.gif

 

HA - Baader H-Alpha 35nm .. I went with the 35 because I am using it on a OSC camera and I figured that would make it not quite as inefficient as say a 7nm would be  . plus it was $100 cheaper ..  which was important if it turned out I was only going to use it once . 

 

Taken over two nights 

 

HA

40x300s @ 300g

30 darks

30 flats

 

RGB

40x120s @ 300g

30 darks

30 flats

 

all taken with .63 FR and -10C

processed each stack separately  and merged in Photoshop .. had to do some heavy cropping as the images were not that well lined up 

 

I think this came out well enough that I will pursue this from time to time and the cost of the filter was not a waste. 

 

Thanks for looking
