I was not really satisfied with the results of my earlier attempt at processing these IC405 data (, so I tried again in a different way. This rendition is a HOO bicolor coupled with RGB using the combination of Ha and SII for luminance. While it is still not where I'd like it, I think I'm zeroing in on it. I also posted the HaSII monochrome version, Version B.
