This is almost a straight Hubble palette:
R: 0.2 Ha + 0.8 S-II
G: Ha

I may upload a more "normal" HSO version ,,, the green isn't too everyone's taste, but it does tease out a lot of detail.

Framing is a little off: I've been having trouble with my autoguider suddenly "taking a dive" on the DEC axis. Tried to correct for it but ended up being a little off. Need to learn plate-solving one of these days.
