Helix Nebula

I took this image of NGC 7293, the Helix Nebula, the same night that I imaged the Cocoon Nebula.  It was way hotter that night than it needed to be, and my DSLR was showing definite signs of heatstroke.  Still, I plowed forward, taking images on the Epsilon-200.  The NJP mount was giving me fits, too, but I managed to make it behave enough to get a few decent subs of the nebula.  Anyway, after many attempts at processing and reprocessing what, for all intents and purposes, was a whole bunch of crummy subs, I got this:
