Trevor,
Just found this on the www.Skyhound.com site, www.skyhound.com/sh/archive/jan/IC_434.html
Will check the images we took last night to see if my "electronic eye" saw it.

I have a 1.25" inch lumicon h-beta filter. If you (or anyone) wants to borrow it you'd be more than welcome to.

Dave, if you are at Galway at the weekend my self and Trevor will be there and would love to take you up on that offer. Just last club meeting we were asked about the practicability of using these type of filter (narrow band filters) and we had to admit that we had no experience of them.
See you there?

Will check the images we took last night to see if my "electronic eye" saw it.

Here is the result of two 120 second raw exposures at ISO 1600 through a 300mm F5.6 Sigma lens on my 300D, stacked in DeepSkyStacker, one dark frame and a little bit of Paint Shop pro for resizing.

Not great, need more images but the clouds and the cold were getting to me! However I can just see a hint of of the horsey! :D
