I decided to quit while I was ahead here. This is Ha and OIII only. Kind of an HOO image of sorts. I'm still working on my integration with PI.

Using a wide field as I do, the Pelican area is not as prominent, but surely visible.

A closer version, still in HOO. I really need more data for this, but at least now you can easily ID the nebula.
