I took on the challenge of a little guy this time! Planetary nebula NGC 7008 in Cygnus on the small side at 1.4'x1.1'.

 

This is RGB only. No luminance. 104 x 60 sec R=G=B. Camera gain = 76. Bortle 6 skies.

 

The Skywatcher MN190 is definitely working better for me on these smaller targets than the TS130. The image holds up pretty well to a nearly full scale crop. Nice blue color with this one...
