This image is an example of how you can take H-alpha images when Moon is too bright (18 Hydrogen Alpha images of 20 minutes each) and then spend considerably lesser time on the object for RGB images on dark nights (4 each of RGB images of 10 minutes each) and then process H-alpha data as Luminance.
