1 February 2017 (RGB data from 11 Feb 2016) - Las Cruces, NM

Color data on this night was not usable, so pulled the data from the FS-60C that I collected 1 year prior (nearly to the day). The 130F was past meridian while imaging, here - and this was a first test object of sorts for the night, so focus was also not very sharp, unfortunately. This image is LHaRGB, where Ha was used in combination with Luminance and Ha:R (80:20) was used for the Red channel.
