Have not had many good nights.  Last night was clear but windy, and I was able to pull this out.

Telescope Celestron EdgeHd8 with hyperstar v4, Optolong LeEnhanced  filter.

Capture software N.I.N.A.

Location Texas 

images 90x60's at 120 gain and chip temp set top -10 Which has seemed to be a sweet spot for the 294

Flats 30 x .976 sec using nina flats wizard

Dark flats 30 x .976 sec using nina flats wizard

integration and post processing all done in Pixinsight. Then unloaded tiff file into photo shop to convert to jpeg, and resized in windows photos to reduce to under 500kb for this forum.

Best I have seen for OSC or Mono, nice job.  Very 3-D and almost solid looking.  I have the same OTA and the camera and Hyperstar are coming.  I even have the same guiding camera.  I will have wedge though.  Can't wait to try this.  I'm Bortle 2.
