I'm not sure this is what I was going for, but this is what I got!
RGB with some narrowband mixed in, but it's hard to see. I didn't really get the outer butterfly like I wanted. I guess I'll try to gather some more narrowband, but man am I getting tired of doing this one!
Added about a half hour of Ha and an hour of O3. I can't really tell the difference. I'll probably reprocess from scratch.
Finally got the outer shell visible!
I actually thought I was finished with this, but upon finally closing out of Photoshop, I found an earlier unsaved draft that I thought had better color and star sizes in the core (and only the core), so I combined it with the rest of version L.
I had adjusted the levels in Version M as well, but forgot to 'undo' the adjustment to the outer shell.
