I was interesting in seeing how well this would show up with a LPR filter from my backyard, so I captured five 10 minute live stacked images and then stacked them. Conditions weren't ideal - seeing was ok but not great and the full moon was rising, but still low. It came out a lot better than I expected though, so thought it worth sharing. Definitely worth trying again under better sky conditions.

There is some faint unrelated red Ha clouds that show up in deep images spreading around this planetary. You can see some tinges of red here and there in the background sky from this emission.
