Lovely shot, how different it looks to my OSC image from last time out, I could well require a lot more data as I was cut short by cloud. This looks really nice and I like it a lot.

It's  a lovely image.

I know that If I had taken it I wouldn't bother gathering any more data because I wouldn't be able to reproduce the balance of colours and contrasts if I started again.

I posted my effort a bit earlier.  I think yours is superior, much more subtle and nicely framed. I’m surprised your long exposures in Ha didn’t flood everything else out as I found the signal quite strong, even at only 300s.  I got nothing to show in OIII at 300s but I had made up my mind to stick with RGB for colour given I had read the blue stuff was down to reflection, so kudos to you for teasing out some OIII.

I only took 1 O3 and dropped O3 once I saw the downloaded image.

 

Using APP I blended in a bit of Ha and S2 on the 1 O3 sub.

Then in PS I used the selective colour method based on http://bf-astro.com/hubblep.htm

And final noise reduction in Topaz denoise.

 

As its NB I reckon it is reasonable work around 😉.
