Shot over 3 nights. L was integrated from ~2000 best 2s frames with best FWHMs around 1.3". RGB is ~100 30s frames each channel, and Ha and OIII are 30 180s frames each. The trickiest part not surprisingly was to combine HOO with LRGB, but allowed me to expose the outer shell some.

 

GSO 10" F/5 Newtonian

CEM60

ASI294MM

Chroma LRGB

Chroma Ha and OIII 3nm

That is a great shot. Print it on metal so that the colors will pop.

The outer shell looks fantastic! you really captured the extensive reach of it. Well done!

Thank you Ron - it definitely took some effort to capture it from Bortle 5, I might want to improve it with more integration weather allowing.
