Description

This was taken with a standard Celestron C8, not an EDGE so I realize the corners are crap but oh well. I may go back at some point and try to fix those stars if I can figure out a realistic approach to doing so.

Bi-Color with:

R - HA

G -HA .5 + OIII 1.5

B - OIII

Special thanks to Adam from the Astro Imaging Chanel as I use hi Bi-Color step by step video published on Oct 2015.
