Hi
I managed to shoot some SII and OIII data last night to finish this off although for part of the evening I was shooting through bonfire smoke and then high mist at the end of the night. Although conditions could have been much better I'm still pleased with the final result. This was taken with the Televue NP127/FLI astrograph on my Paramount ME with exposures times of 24x10 minutes Ha, 22x10 minutes OIII and 30x10 minutes SII. There is plenty of Ha and OIII but the SII is very weak.
Hope you like it
