I've attempted this object before and wasn't very happy with it so tried it again but this time, with OIII data. My first Ha/OIII image wasn't very good at bringing out the OIII areas so one goal was to improve on that problem and I do like this result as the OIII colors (80% blue, 20% green) really help to bring out details. This image is a luminance blend of 20% Ha, 20% OIII from a monochrome camera, and 60% RGB from an OSC camera. The narrowband data are 2-panel mosaics. Ha 40x500s, OIII 40x500s, RGB 45x200s.
