IC 1848, start of the project

Last night I started a new project with IC 1848.
Here is first Ha exposures, 5x1800s and 7x900s.
I'll shoot more lights for H-alpha and color in near future, if weather allows.
This is a very dimm target for my focal lenght, LX200 GPS 12" @ f6.3
It will need an other five hours of exposures, I think.
Camera: QHY8 cooled 6mb color cam.
Guiding: SXV-AO active optics system
