It has been a while since I had posted on Astromart - thought I would check in with this image.

Here is an image of a planetary nebula that has a fairly good response on a H-Alpha exposure. I have attached a mid size thumbnail - a full size image and exposure / processing info at:

Scope is a C8 at f/2.8 - Camera is a ToUcam SC3.

Great shot Jim!
Are you using Fastar on your SCT? or a focal reducer to get to f/2.8?

Thank you for sharing! and keep'em coming!

Jim,
Very nice shot, with great color. You've inspired me to add it to my Ha list while Gemini is still high in the sky.
Thanks for posting,

That is excellent, Jim.
Inspired choice of an object and the processing looks spot on.
I put it on my to-do list, too.
