I tried this one last week and wasn't happy with the result.  So I took my own advice and got more data.  The 15min Ha frames really made the difference.

 

Orion 200mm f/4 Newtonian

Atik 383L+

 

8x 600s Ha, 1x1
12x 900s Ha, 1x1
8ea 120s RGB, 2x2

5.9 hrs total

Beautiful. I was just looking at this one a few nights ago. Got  pretty ok EAA shot of it but nothing like this, of course. This one has a ton of great little details but doesn't seem to get as much notice for some reason.
