Here is my attempt at the Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888).  Also captured the very faint Soap Bubble Nebula in the lower left of the image!  It's hard to spot unless you know where you're looking. 

 

Captured using a Celestron RASA 11", ASI1600MM-C camera, and Baader f/2 highspeed narrowband filters (Ha and OIII).

 

45 x 60 seconds per filter. 

50 dark frames.

 

Edited in PixInsight and Lightroom.

 

Thanks for looking!

Aha!  I see the soap bubble!  Very nice integration for just 45 minutes.  Gotta love those Rasas.

Outstanding Dan! I see the bubble now! Great capture. You should try getting 10 hours on it. Bet that soap bubble would jump out at us!
