Al Johnson captured an image of the Eastern Veil Nebula, NGC6992, last fall. It is Ha narrowband taken with a Starlight Express 814 mono camera through a Takahashi FS102 refractor.

Jim Mazur took this close-up view of Comet ZTF (C/2022 E3) through his 14″ Meade on January 30. Image processing was tricky because the comet was moving so fast. A set of 60 10-second images had to be stacked once aligning on the comet and suppressing the stars, and then a second time aligning on the stars and suppressing the comet.
