A great object for Narrowband with a strong OIII central region to provide some kick, the SII providing structure, and the Ha giving a nice smooth finish. Sounds like a good wine!

101 five minute subs binned 2x2 and unguided. Ha 20, OIII 28, and 54 SII.

SII for red, OIII for Blue, Green is 15% Ha, 42% SII, and 42% OIII. Luminance is Ha with a little SII and OIII.
