This is NGC 6888, aka the Crescent Nebula in the constellation of Cygnus. While the modified camera does an excellent job of capturing Hα, an object like this needs addition Hα-only exposures to improve the contrast against its busy background. Something for another day. A higher-resolution version of this image is also available, as is my previous attempt from last year with an unmodified camera. Note how much more Hα the modified camera records. North is up.
