John spent three days over the Bank Holiday Weekend capturing this image.  Time well spent!  He reports that this was only his second narrow band session and he was experimenting with the filter wheel, trying Ha, Oiii and Sii, plus a few IR/UV subs in for good measure. 

But the final excellent result is what you see here, using:

Ha 16 x 300s gain 139

Oiii 20 x 300s gain 139
