Description

I've processed this back in January but I ended up discarding the outcome, as I've lacked the skills to come up with something usable, especially with the small amount of data I've captured with OIII and SII.

I thought of giving it another try almost 9 months later, and I think the outcome is worth sharing. But, I will definitey revisit this target and capture it properly.

Comments and feedback are appreciated. And as always, I am indecisive on which version to consider final.

Clear skies!
