Finally able to get enough time to image this here in Oregon. Always wanted to get both NGC 7331 & NGC 7320 in one FOV.
TEC 140, ST10xme, AP1200 Mount. Approx. 4.2 hours of exposure LRGB

Excellent color, Sam, and a fine natural processing.
I was hoping that you would post a crummy image so that I could say "It's the Pitts!"

Great photo! I've had a lot of fun observing those objects with my 18" Obsession this fall. I've never seen a photo that shows so many faint objects in that area, but your pic does it with great clarity.
