Had my first go at this target in narrowband with the QHY5L-II-M. Was very skeptical if i could use the extremely faint and noisy OIII data at all, but i think it did somehow work, although it's a bit on the noisy side.

all in all i'm very happy with the result, especially for my first attempt.
Not sure if i made the proper color balance though? Any tips and thoughts are welcome. :)

Captured with the QHY5L-II-M at 50% gain, unguided with a 135mm F/3.5 Olympus lens.
100x 120sec OIII
47x 120sec Ha

      Hi, I just published a video of how I am cleaning my filters - I thought I might do this while my telescope is back at service due to some kind of astigmatism.
      How do you guys clean your filters? it seems that every dust particle finds it way to the filters just as you are done cleaning them, and to sit in a damp bathroom seems kind of a mess...

      Anyway, here is the video
