During the May new moon I got a Saturday night of imaging at my house in the Tehachapi's.  It took awhile to get everything up and going, and my first target, Centaurus A, was already setting when I started to shoot it, so this is one hour of RGB data shot at only 10 degrees altitude and well past the meridian - this target will have to wait for next year:


It was windy most of the evening, so for the main target, the Trifid nebula, I ended up having to through away half of the H-alpha images; so this image has 30 minutes H-alpha, 1 hour Luminance, and 1 hour total for the RGB binned 2x2:
