I used my uncooled ASI178 MC for this to see how the chip handles the weaker parts of this nebula. Well - concerning 13 hours of integration more of the weaker regions should be visible. Could be that the filter didn't fit well to the integration time of the single frames? I'm not sure. However, the strength of this camera is lucky imaging with brighter objects. No bias or flat frames here.

Taken at f/2.8 under Bortle 5 sky.
