 There is one advantage of using this camera for red nebula despite its blindness to the hydrogen alpha reds - the images are much closer to what the eye would see in a giant telescope as far a color is concerned. This is a test image, to see just what I would record in a very short one minute exposure. Differential processing of the Raw image allowed some latitude on the core region to keep it from burning out.
