Testing my new 135mm lens and 5nm HA filter combo with the Atik One 6 camera from my light polluted back garden in Witney, I'm very pleased with the result for the total of 2.5 hours of capture.

Cracking stuff. I have been contemplating going down the h-alpha filter route, but my other half may have other opinions! What is the 5nm filter you are using?

Thanks Ray, I'm using a 1.25” Astrondon 5nm HA filter in the built  filter wheel of the Atik One 6, I also have the 3nm OIII filter and  I'm glad I bought them a few years ago when they were a bit cheaper.
