I added more hours into this and recombined it into a color version. 14hr (2x2 bin and unbinned) H-Alpha, 3hr (2x2 bin) OIII and 3hr (unbinned) RGB through UHC-S L-booster filter. 20 hours in total, all subs are 15 min. each.

Thank you, guys! Don't shed any more light on me, PLEASE! Though, H-Alpha is OK, OIII seems more difficult than even the RGB. And all this make me wonder, if I should bit the bullet and get myself a cabin upstate... spend time getting more better photons, LOL!

That sheds a whole new light on it (yuck yuck). I vote for the award too. Marc

I agree with Mark's most recent statement. Heck, it's amazing you could find a star to guide on! :-) Well done!!

Hey, I love the challenge! :) It's actually New Jersey, right across from Manhattan.

Marc, thanks for commenting! I did try to stretch more, it gives me too light a background, after all, it is taken in one of the worst light-polluted places. Guess there's a limit to what can be done 5 miles away from midtown Manhattan, LOL!

Like the detail on the bubble. You might pull out more nebulosity w/some more stretching, not sure. Cool pic, Marc
