This is a 4 panel mosaic image. Each panel consists of: RGB = 8x10min each Ha=15x20min each OIII=15x20min each 
Total exposure = 56 hours! (14 hours per panel) The RGB data was taken at a dark sky site away from home, during the 2015 Perseid meteor shower (I counted 30+ meteors in 90min!). The narrowband data was all taken from my home observatory.
