Elephant Trunk Nebula in IC1396, in H alpha


It's a decent image, but transparency was poor on both nights this was acquired. Better detail with less noise would have been obtained if conditions had been better, and if I had been at my high-altitude site.

Bootland Farm, August 18 (6x) and my back yard, August 22 (11x); Parsec 8300M with H-alpha filter (17x1000s) on TV85 at f/5.6; guided.
