NGC6960 TheWitch's Broom

Just thought I'd share my latest attempt. I tried to process with with a synthetic luminance, not sure if I did it correctly but seems to have helped some. I took 9 x 300s each of R,G and B binned at 1x1. All processing was done with PixInsight and basically involved standard calibration, RGB combibe, neutralizing the background, extract the luminance, histogram stretch the RGB and luminance, blend the luminance with the RGB and then just a dash of ACDNR. In retrospect I should have chosen a different framing by putting 52 Cygni closer to the top of the frame and then I could have pulled in more of the fainter bits near the bottom. Anyway, thanks for looking!

It has a lot of texture and depth.
Looks like however you created and combined the luminance layer it contributed to a fantastic looking Witch's Broom.
