Here are three images of M8 I took.  Same scope and mount but different camera.

 

Nikon D80 - Full Spectrum

 

SBIG ST-2000CXM

 

Canon Rebel T7 (1500D)

 

Which one of these images of M8 do you prefer?

Not really a fair comparison. Different processing, different acquisition strategies. As sits, I prefer the Nikon, but with additional data and stretching.

Honestly speaking, none, it is like you didn't use each camera for its strength, just making different results and that's all, i will be happy with any of those results if i use unmodded DSLR, but with modded DSLR or cooled CMOS/CCD i will never be happy with any of those actually.

Are you picking the Canon over the SBIG and Nikon because it's taken by a camera that's more like "human" vision?

Do you prefer the higher sensitivity to red/IR with the Nikon and SBIG over the Canon?

 

Originally, this was suppose to be a question about whether the one-shot color cameras without the IR filter was better or is it better to keep the IR filter and have a more natural color.  I kind of got carried away and just tossed in the SBIG.

 

Yes, I'm still inexperienced in post-processing, but I am getting better at it.

This object screams for masked stretching, otherwise you saturate the bright parts as in the SBIG and Canon images. The Nikon image, although dim, hasn't anything clipped, so appeals more. Nothing to do with human vision, everything to do with bringing out the detail throughout the image.
