This image was captured from Trevor's Bortle Scale Class 6 backyard using a Canon EOS 60Da DSLR camera. A SkyTech CLS-CCD filter was used to help isolate this nebula from a light polluted sky. The image was captured through a William Optics Zenithstar 73 APO refractor in June, 2019.

Was fun processing this, first time processing DSLR data. Many thanks Trevor!
