I had an opportunity to image the Cone nebula and Christmas tree cluster in narrowband recently using the Samyang 135mm F2 lens. In total I had taken 25 x 3 min H-alpha, 24 x 3 min O-III and 20 x 3 min S-II subs for stacking (total 3hr 27 min exposure). I used Gain 200 on my ASI178MM-cooled @ -25 degrees Celsius.
