Sh2-129 - Flying Bat and Squid Nebula and IC 1396 The Elephant's Trunk Nebula
12

This was the most difficult project I've worked on since starting this hobby a year and a half ago. I've shot 15 minute Oiii subs for a full night from my Bortle 6 backyard and the Squid wasn't showing. I barely got the Oiii having spent 2 nights at darker skies. 110 x 10 minutes Ha from home, 37 x 15 minutes Oiii from Bortle 3-4 sites. Total integration time of 27 hours and 35 minutes. Processing the image was really difficult since the Elephant's Trunk was overexposed compared to the Squid.

QHY600M, Chroma 3nm Ha + Oiii, Redcat 51, Cem70 - Pixinsight.
