This is a tricolor, and my sense is that the SII, while much weaker than the Ha, adds some extra detail to this target that a bicolor misses.  This data is two years old, and is some of the last shot with my fork mount C11 before I deforked it and moved it to a Paramount.  I'll probably go after this target again next fall with the new mount (and improved capture techniques).  And I'll certainly frame it better!

 

This is about 22 hours with an SXVR-H694 and Astrodon filters.  A higher resolution image, with full details of capture and processing, is at the link below.
