NGC 7023 - A work in process

I started gathering data on this wonderful object last night. Here are the details:

Scope: BRC-250
Camera: STL-11000
L (80 Minutes) R (60 Minutes) G (60 Minutes) B (50 Minutes) All data taken in 10 minute subs

I lost one of my blue exposures due to a numbers of problems, but the image begins to show the promise of this object - you just don't find many blue emission nebula like this one. I've got to push my Luminous layer deeper (maybe another hour), and add a bit more color (evening out the missing blue data). There is a large surrounding dark nebula that I'd really like to bring out. So there is more work to do - but here is what I have so far.......

Mike, nice image. Is this a cropped version or full ST11k frame?
