M27 Dumbell Nebula

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Celestron c11 sct, skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik Ha RGB filter set.

LHaRGB image with six hours of data over 3 nights. Blended the Ha data into the luminance channel.

Tried to capture the faint halo. If I really stretched the image I could start to see it. But the rest of the image looked over processed.

The ha data helped to capture more detail in the bright core.

I was going to image some objects in Cygnus but my neighbours cherry tree was in the way.
