Hey, I shot this image over the course of this fall. It is shot from bortle 9 with UHC and Ha clip in filters with a 50mm nifty 50 on a modded canon 450d. Roughly 4-5 hours exposure time. 

 

My first real complete astrophotography project.

Impressive. What would make it even better, IMO, would be to mix in some exposures acquired without any filters, both to  recover star colors (and star brightnesses) and add some colors other than red and orange to nebulae that do emit significantly at other wavelengths in addition to Ha (such as the North America Nebula).

This picture is a blended version of starnet++ and a hargb. The star field in the original is immense and really hid the nebula data. I have tried both edits and like the starless version a bit more. I picked up a mono camera and narrowband filters recently so in summer I can do a mosiac once it becomes a target again.

That is fantastic. Ilove the structuce in the nebulae at lower left.

Excellent data and processing. I always sneak a few stars back into my Starnet processes.

Looks ominous and angry in all red!
