The Double Cluster in Perseus is a popular target among amateur astrophotographers, it is an easy object to capture, and it is most of the time imaged in RGB.

 

 

What makes this image unique is all the Hydrogen Alpha gas (red) all around the cluster.

 

I spent one night capturing R, G, and B signal. Then I spent 3 extra nights (20 hours) imaging but this time with a hydrogen alpha filter. Even with 20 hours of exposure in HA, it was difficult to bring out the gas during processing because it is still relatively faint in this area of the sky. This is what I was able to achieve. You can see the beautiful Double Cluster, and an incredible amount of HA gas behind and around.
