Here's my processing of a One-Click Observation of the Tarantula Nebula taken by Telescope Live from Chile with a Planewave CDK24/FLI ProLine PL9000. It's only 2 subs each of HA, OIII, and SII @300s, f/6.5. I took the calibrated FITS files and processed them in Pixinsight. Not much data but I was surprised it came out as good as it did. Just thought I'd post it.
Hope ya like it!
PS: I've, obviously, never imaged this object.....so I hope I got the colors sort of right!
