Very nice indeed, Peter, this one is already on my 'hit list' if we ever get another clear night or rather nights!! This is a lovely rendition.

What filters did you use for this image?

Thanks Steve. I've been wanting to have a go at this one for a long time. The filters were all Astrodons. Ha was 5nm, OIII was 3 nm.

Fantastic image.  Well done.

This is a faint, faint target.....  A case of pointing and hoping for me.     I tried for 3 hours and got a 'possible'  blur.   I shall be inspired by this.

It's tricky. The bubble is only visible in narrowband - more so in OIII than Ha.  I did 30-minute subs binned 3x3 to extract as much signal as I could.  Clear dark skies help a lot too!

Well done Peter. This is as crisp as you like and, for once, nobody is going to ask, 'What am I supposed to be looking at?' Yes, that's a winner plain and simple.
