Here is my image from this weekend. I did the Pelican, just to see what it would look like in LRGB-HA with my new AT8RC.
Here is the link to the full resolution image.

Specs are

Astrodon Gen 2 Filters
G-11 Gemini (Auto-Guided with PHD)

L = 24 x 10 min 1x1 (Binned)
R = 12 x 10 min 2x2
G = 12 x 10 min 2x2
B = 12 x 10 min 2x2
HA = 14 x 10 min 1x1

This is the longest exposure image I have done to date. Just had to see what would develope with plenty of exposure. Hope you like it, I do know it has been shown a lot lately.

Looks pretty good to me Floyd.

I just bought a 2" four position filter wheel from Orion. I got it for testing different filters, but you are making me think that I may have to try some RGB imaging with it.
