I continue with the North America nebula for three hours last night. Here's the end result.
The image was taken with a narrowband filter that only passes light emitted by hydrogen glowing at a certain wavelength when exposed to the harsh ultraviolet radiation from nearby stars.
With narrowband filters it is possible to separate different elements from each other, and also - maybe more importantly - get rid of most of light pollution.

Valve: latest Linux gaming work boosting AMD Vulkan framerates up to 44% (!)
Even in its infancy, this new shader compiler is resulting in a 44% framerate boost on certain AMD graphics cards.
