It is one of the brightest and easiest nebula to image. It was the first object I turned my camera to, and it never disappoints with those greens and reds. You've got a lot of detail in the edges if you can brighten them up without over exposing the centre. In fact it is one of those objects that just gets bigger and bigger when you increase the exposure. It is a great first image.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
