NGC 1579 is sometimes called the Northern Trifid and is a very interesting mix of reflection and emission nebulae, much like its southern namesake. However, it is quite a bit dimmer and is a much more challenging subject. This is doubly so if you have any light pollution. I ended up taking 10 hours 50m of data in LRGB (29, 14, 11, 11 subs of 10m each binned 1x1 respectively). Since this object is well into my worst light pollution lying to the North, I'm pretty happy how it turned out. I also took 6 hours of HA data, but it really does nothing to improve it. The data was taken on October 23rd and 24th, 2014.
I have fooled with my equipment yet again. I went back to my original spacing with the CCDT67. I just wasn't happy with the stars I was getting with the additional 6.7mm of distance between the CCDT67 and the sensor. This meant shooting all new flats.
