As I continue to put my new ZWO ASI2600MM through its paces, I took advantage of a recent spell of exceptional weather here to have it acquire its first narrow-band capture. I chose the Elephant Trunk ( IC 1396 ) as the target

 

My acquisition was not optimal as I was shooting in my Rochester light dome for much of the data. But I'm quite happy with this camera so far.

 

Image and acquisition details are on my Astrobin: https://www.astrobin.com/hqj725/

 

Thanks for looking.....

Well done! It’s almost enough to make me break down and buySII and OIII filters!

Thank you all so much!

 

Strangely, I find that, for me, narrowband is easier to process and work with than broadband (eg. LRGB).....
