This is my first attempt at this beautiful object.
Shot by a clear sky but strong moon light.
Processing was performed end to end with PixInsight.
I have applied the same approach as recently used in my latest shots, but performed NR on the RGB channels before merging with the Luminance - the outcomes are much better this way, it also helps with the slight sharpening at the end.
