Ok I was a little heavy handed with the star reduction BUT check out that Hydrogen emission! It was all I could do to not just post a starless version. The most aptly common-named nebula in the sky, Cat’s Paw. First go at a new configuration which is pretty epic :

Celestron 11” RASA F2
QHY268M Camera
SkyWatcher EQ8Rh-Pro Mount
2m x 48 (Hydrogen Alpha)
2m x 30 (Green Filter)
2m x 31 (Oxygen[III])
Combined as Ha-HaGO … LOL
Total Integration : 3.63 hours
