The Elephant Trunk Nebula (IC1396)

Due to a recent spell of good weather and being able to image for 5 clear nights in a row (an all time record!) I have been able to finish this image in less than a week, it is of IC1396 in the HST palette. It was taken with the Televue NP127is/FLI imaging system that I'm testing on my Paramount ME with auto guiding done by a Starlight Xpress Lodestar and Officine Stellare Falco guide scope using dithering.
Exposures are 21x10 minutes for Ha and 24x10 minutes each for OIII and SII

The full size version can be found at the following link which shows the detail much better

Thanks for looking
Best wishes
