The result of one of my imaging sessions from Kelling Heath Autumn Equinox star party NGC 7635 The Bubble Nebula in Cassiopeia Imaged using Atik 314L monochrome CCD camera and William Optics FLT-110 refractor on NEQ6 Pro SynScan mount 10 x 300 second subs in H-alpha
Hi here's an image I took over the last couple of weeks. Its 30 x 10mins of Ha and 9 x 10mins each of RGB. I'm relatively new to AP so still getting to grips with everything (especially processing).
I've read on here that using Ha as a lum file is not advisable so would really appreciate any advice on combing Ha with RGB in this type of image. Would adding Lum, Oiii or S data help.
All feedback would be gratefully received.
M52 and NGC 7635 (the Bubble nebula)
16 18 x 10 minutes exposures at ISO 200
SW 150PDS on AZ EQ6GT, Pentax K20D (not modified)
The camera picks up some Ha. Enough for the bubble to show, but not enough for the background Ha. I'm not sure if I should keep the faint red or get rid of it and get an even background.

Hi all, I'm finally back imaging! its been way too long.
Still need to drive errors out of the system and i'll work on that as i go, but heres my first light from the obs.
Equipment: 127 triplet apo with Atik428ex, guided by a Starwave 102ed with QHY5II (with 0.5fr) on an AZEQ6.
3 x 5min subs + 3 x 10min subs in 12nm Ha; no bias frames, darks or flats.
Stacked in DSS and processed in Gimp. I was battling with high cloud so not as much detail as i had hoped for.
Cheers for looking.
