Rough stack...
Still experimenting with IDAS filter on front of DSLR lenses.
In this case on a 105mm Sigma lens.
Sky still pretty bright even with filter (but at least not orange) - combination of relatively early, moon light and light from town.
Was guessing where nebula would be based on double cluster (obviously couldn't see them on subs at the time) but was quite a bit off.
