Description

Here is Elephant's trunk nebula (IC 1396) in widefield captured with my Redcat and 2600MC. I used an Optolong L-Extreme filter to capture the NB data. I used masks and synthesized the blue color from Ha and OIII signals extracted from the NB data. 

Integration: RGB: 30,000s (8.33 hours)
NB: 61,200s (17 hours)

Total: ~25 hours.
