I took the Ha back in 2022 in Swanley (chez Dave Taylor), but as the rest of the data was pretty poor from that due to clouds I forgot all about it.

I took it again at Cairds DSC back in October 2023 in LRGB.
Both attempts did not yield much data.

Swanley 2022 I wasn't able to use the Lum but I managed to use 11 x 600 Ha.
Cairds Lum 10 x 600
RGB 10 x 600 each
total 3 hours 20m + Swanley 11 x 600 (1h 50m)
Grand total is now 5h 10m

Still plan to get more data on this if I can but big tree in the way at home for Ha and the rest would need to be done at DSC.

This is the image from Cairds in October.



This is the revised image with the Ha added.

Nice clean and sharp image John.  One would never know you only started just over a year ago.

This is a target I have never done.

Excellent as always, Roberto, but it's especially nice to see the component parts of the IC1396 image. Thanks.

Thank you Dave, Carole!   Carole, yes did not post the OIII image as not particularly detailed, but SHO indeed.  The OSC image provided the stars and some of the nebulae colours for the "trunk" where there's a nice reflection nebula (vdB142).

Wow, a great string of images. Might turn that into some sort of educational demo during Members images.  Didn't see an image for Oiii but you say it is SHO, then  OSC thrown in, presume that's for the stars.
