This is a full narrowband image combined with an RGB image to get a little bit of the best of both. The fine detail and color separation of the Hubble palette with the natural stars and reflection nebula of the RGB. Putting up the Narrowband alone as well for comparison.

I used the NBRGB Combination script in PixInsight to do the combination. The RGB images were taken without light pollution filters, and the script does a great job of bringing in what you want from NB to beat the light pollution.
