Description

First chance to test the new Baader Ultra-Narrowband Highspeed H-alpha filter.  Wow, it works!  The background is so dark I didn't have to do much processing at all, no background extraction or anything.  The data looked amazing just as a calibrated stack.  Samyang 135mm lens wide open at f/2.

Description: Got another clear night somehow during the monsoon and added OIII data with the new 4nm ultra-narrowband f/2 filter. Same exposure time as H-alpha, 40 x 90s.
