A bit noisy and I fought pretty hard with the color, seeing was not good for the OIII and the stars were huge so that took some work, but overall pretty pleased with it, better than my last attempt I think. FOV is quite a bit bigger but I liked this framing. Not sure my flats are quite correct with all that red in the bottom right though.

 

SII 10x20min

HA 18x20min

OIII 21x20min
