Elephant Trunk Nebula (part of IC1396)
Observing location
Ile d'Oleron, France

Atik 460EX mono, SX guide cam
Skywatcher AZ-EQ6-GT
Baader filters (HII, R, G, B)

Good dark sky on the French Atlantic coast assisted by sensitivity to light pollution on the campsite.

Taken over entire night of 21/22nd Sept

I think the NBRGB process in Pixinsight for combining the Ha and RGB has worked well here.
