This is one that was a huge challenge for me due to the sheer amount of stars in it. My thing was trying to bring out the nebulae while not blowing the stars out and while keeping the noise down. I would do my processing, then start over, then repeat. This was probably the 5th iteration before I finally said I had to take a break and let it stand. I will likely come back to this after I improve on my processing skills a lot.
