I am a little late processing the data from earlier this year.  This is an HOO image taken with my TEC 140 scope and a QSI660 Camera with Astrodon 3nm filters.

 

Ha  35 x 600 seconds

OIII 35 x 600 seconds

 

Processed in PI and Photoshop. 

 

I shot this many years ago and was not happy with it. This is much better but still can be improved by more time. However, I am done with it and will go on to other objects.

Wow! That is cool! I love that blue outer shell in there. You don't see that very often. Really great detail and sharpness as well...

Thanks everyone.

 

This is a shot of the first time I tried this with a DSLR and 90 second subs back in 2007.  Over the years I got a little better with it.  Practice Practice Practice.
