This is a hybrid image consisting of two frames of Ha taken with an Explore Scientific 152ED refractor and ST-8300 camera with Baader 7nm filter (25 subframes at 5 min. for each). The color image was taken with a Televue Genesis and modified Canon 650D camera (30 subframes at 5 min.). 

The Ha frames were aligned in RegiStar and combined in Photoshop.  The Ha and color images were also aligned in RegiStar and combined in Photoshop.  The final image was adjusted in Photoshop.
