So there was a forecast block of clear skies (3 nights out of 4 last week) and DEC through APR was brutal so I have been anxious this last month to shoot . However there are fires in Canada and My state borders on Canada and at my house the available window corridor of open sky faces north and with the wildfires air quality has taken a hit . On top of that there was a full moon and I wanted to image narrowband and my target barely cleared the roof of my neighbors house (I had to reposition my guidescope so it wasn't going to aim in their bedroom window lol). All that being said I shot with my RASA8 and a 294mm pro on a EQ6R-pro for 3 nights using Baader UHS 3.5/4nm HA,Sii,Oiii filters. I went 180s x 100 each night with a different filter and this is what I got.

So far just calibrated and stacked in APP then DBE in Pixinsight. I am working on getting a good  SHO blend but it is tough and going slowly nevertheless I think I got decent data (in spote of some tilt which is often unavoidable having to remove my camera each session as I used the Starizona filter Holder which requires unscrewing and reattaching after each session for filter change)

Hopefully will be able to add the fully colorized version when done.

Can't recall the FWHM but I do remember HFR on autofocus being around 2.79-3.2 depending on the filter.

 

These are the ones I used
