I captured the Ha and OIII data last October and finally got the SII data this last week. My mistake I ran the sequence for the OIII twice last fall so this image has nearly 7 hour of OIII data compared to 3.5 hours of integration for the Ha and SII data. Maybe I'll add more Ha and SII if we ever have a stretch of clear skies...
