Finally had some time to process this image after six weeks of hard work on AstroBin!
Frankly I wish I still had my S[II] and O[III] filters, as this nebula has some oxygen emissions but they're not visible at all.

The bright star in the lower-right corner had a nasty reflex only on some filters (thanks Astronomik...) so it was tricky to work with, but I guess this is the best I could do.
