M27 is usually a target over the Summer months but after a late session out on a clear night I decided to see how my colour camera would get on with a Baader S filter - really designed to mimic narrowband for a colour camera on a short tube refractor, but it seemed to work quite well on a relatively bright target such as M27, even though it was still quite low in the sky.   This is a stack of just 12x300seconds before I finally callled it a night!  Darks and flats have been added.
