Description

Processing this one was interesting. I tried many different variants of SHO workflows but nothing seemed to really fit the bill. I stumbled across the below PixelMath combination and well, that was it. 

Red - 60% SII + 40% Ha
Green - 60% Ha + 40% OIII
Blue - 70% OIII + 30% Ha

It gave me a very subtle picture that I really liked. Nothing seems to be blown out. I'll have to keep that for some future projects.
