On 6/14/20 I imaged these two nebulae with a Takahashi FSQ-130ED refractor and a 0.7x reducer. I took 11 images at ISO 800 for 180 seconds each and stacked the images via Deep Sky Stacker. No darks, no flats or bias frames were used. Photoshop was used to do the post processing. I used a Canon Ra camera with a custom white balance. I also used a light pollution filter. The exposures were taken from my back porch in Paris, IL. My guiding was a bit off but with this wide a field it wasn't very noticeable in the final image.
