I captured this image from my backyard in Williston (Bortle 4) on 7/27/22.  Lots of stars in this image so I did a basic star minimization in PS, and I don't think it helped much but the nebula itself doesn't seem to be obscured by the stars.    

AT60ED w/ field flattener
ASI2600MC Pro (OSC camera)
SkyGuider Pro with guiding via ASIAir Plus using an ASI120mm mini and a 30mm F4 guide scope
Optolong L-Extreme dual-band filter (H-alpha, O-III)
300 second exposures x 30, with dark, flat, and bias calibration frames
Stacked in Siril and processed in Photoshop

Greg, super capture, thank you for sharing on the forum as well as sharing all of the capture details!   Others can learn.   I have an optolong filter I’ve yet to use.    I have more ‘stuff’ than clear skies and time/ energy!
