Helix in Hydrogen alpha

I am slowly getting back into a decent weather pattern so hopefully I'll be imaging on a regular basis soon.  Here is Helix nebula in Hydrogen alpha.  This is 1 hour and 20 minutes of integration time with the AstroTech 8 inch RCT and the QSI 683 wsg-8.  I am hopeful to get in some OIII soon (I'm just waiting for a break in the clouds).
Helix nebula, a planetary nebula, is about 695 light years away in the constellation Aquarius and is the closest planetary nebula to Earth.
More to follow....
