Here is my attempt at the Iris nebula. Taken with an Atik 460, AVX mount, 208MM Explore Scientific N208CF. Orion SSAG guiding. Stacked and processed in Pixinsight. 7 x 300 seconds blue, 9 x 300 seconds green, 8 x 300 seconds red. 22 x 300 seconds Lum. Astrodon LRGB filters.
I was struggling with guiding last night and I had to reject a large number of subs due to passing clouds.
