The Pacman Nebula

Today I was going after the Pacman Nebula (NGC 281), but it was cut short due to clouds.  I only managed to get in 10 exposures at 5 minutes each.  Still, I was surprised at how much detail can be picked up when using narrowband filters.  This was my 2nd day working with the Orion H-Alpha Extra-Narrowband filter (here was my first day capturing an image in narrowband).

My First Attempt at the Pacman Nebula

The goal is to obtain a color image of this nebula if I can get a couple of clear nights soon.
