I captured the LRGB data for this a few weeks ago, but had to wait for the weather to clear up so I could get some H-alpha data at my home observatory. This was the first time I've tried narrowband imaging at f/10, and it was painfully slow. Next time I will do it binned, but I experimented with that and still wasn't getting the kind of histogram I want to see.
The H-alpha is necessary to show the jets on either side of the galaxy (in red). With a "mere" 3 hours of exposure the dimmer jet on the right side is barely visible. One could probably count the photons manually!
All together this is about 8 hours of exposure; 5 for LRGB and 3 for H-alpha.
8" EdgeHD at f/10 (probably really f/10.5)
