I am happy to show you a a picture of M16 - pillars of creation with the RGB (in fact Ha, SII and OIII) from my french setup at Mt Ventoux (I just keep the colors) and the Halpha from Chili with Sadr setp : a 14''newton from which I made the Luminance
I wanted to keep the stars on the final picture and at the same time , to get the maximum details possible of the pillars. Not an easy task, ... so there it is.
Look at the full image to see the details of the pillars !

Mt Ventoux subs :
49 SII Subs @180s (gain 139, -20°C)
50 OIII Subs @180s (gain 139, -20°C)
57 HalphaSubs @300s (gain 139, -20°C)
=> 156 subs @300s about 13hours of exposure

Chili Subs
27 HalphaSubs @1200s
=> 9hours of exposure

Total exposure => 13+9 = 22 hours
