Thanks to my IDAS LPS filter, I have been able to image in my backyard in the city with decent results. Before I had the filter, a 3 minute exposure would be so washed out, that I could not make out the subject I was imaging until making a levels adjustment in Photoshop. Now, I can take 5 minute exposures at 1600 ISO with minimal effects of light pollution. 

Emission Neblulae like the North America Nebula, Pelican and California really don't show up well with a stock camera, but I have tried my best to pull out as much nebulousity as possible anyway. As the nights get cooler and longer, I will be switching my focus to fall objects in the coming weeks:)
