omg and this is in a light polluted area? 

Digging through my pictures, I found a picture of an exposure I took of the sky with my phone.
35mm, f/2, ISO 1600 & 15s exposure...

Indeed- love the colors!

and wow, you have a lot of light pollution (in the phone shot), ISO 1600 at 15 sec is too much, try ISO 400 at 15 sec and f/3.5

So, new target: NGC 7380 / Wizard Nebula
Unfortunately, weather has been really not great lately, but has cleared up the last few days. Buuuut, the moon is almost full and is essentially ruining my skies by basically bumping it from Bortle 8 to Bortle 8-9. 
Nonetheless, I've managed to get quite a bit of Ha and SII data (waiting for moon to go away before doing OIII)
Here's also a neat thing I've put together to show the power of stacking.Image

That's breathtaking.  Very nice work.  Those extra 3 hours on OIII really did the trick!

Wow amazing Phunnie! So, you have Bortle 8 sky, and still able to got such amazing shots? What scope do you have?
I will buy a telescope soon, so will join the club:) I have Bortle 9, the most polluted sky as possible. But narrow-band filters doing magics :)

Alright well few days of clear skies for the next week (I hope I didn't just jinx it) so new targets!
Helix Nebula - NGC 7293. Very hard target from 45 degree north. Relatively large and dim target. Max altitude is at 25 degrees and I can only shoot it for about 2.5 hours per night. Here's 29x300s.
Image
And while helix wasn't visible, I did a few frames on Crescent Nebula - NGC 6888. 10x300sImage
Much more signal with less time compared to broadband I did earlier this summer.

Took some pictures of the moon tonight. Might not be as impressive as you guys, though, but I quite like them.
