The home of the famous "Elephants Trunk" Nebula, IC1396is an active
starformation area in Cepheus.After the Veil Nebula I shot 6x1200s trough H-alpha filter and then 3x1200s trough OIII filter. My goal is shoot SII channel as soon as possible and makea narrowband three color image. The Green channel is synthesized from O-III and H-alpha.
