I'm usually not a fan of the SHO palette, but there are a few targets where it works well and I've been wanting to process it this way for a while. I'm really behind on my processing - after a month of not being able to gather any data, I've now got at least 4 images for processing and I'm instead reprocessing this. Still not 100% happy with it - I just feel like I can't get any good data out of a refractor yet.
