I took the images for this picture the middle of January, but never got the time to process them. This is 5 10-minute images with an H-alpha filter. It shows quite a bit of nebulosity beyond just IC443. I was surprised at how deep it goes for such a short exposure; I normally figure on 2-3 hours for most H-alpha shots.

Taken with the Sky90 on the Paramount ME with an ST-10XE, using my remote setup in New Mexico. This is a cropped and reduced version; for the full-size version, please see:

Hi Ron, I agree, I think this looks great for only 50min. Could only improve with more data! How do you like your Sky90? I've been looking at this or an FS78 to piggyback on my AP130 for wider field images.
