Due to my suburban location and the nearly full moon, I chose to tackle the Orion nebula in narrowband. It wasn't the look I was expecting but the separation of the wavelengths provide a great look at the structure of the nebula. 6-7 30 minute shots for each color channel make the base with a series of 3 minute and 10 second shots stacked to fill the detail of the core.
