Finally, an RGB version I am happy with. Blended in a little Ha but its mostly LRGB. Atik 383L+ and TMb 130SS.

I really like it. Perhaps a star reduction to bring out the dark nebulosity?

Thank you Hytham. Star reduction is a challenge with so many bright stars around. I have actually done some of that already. I did not want to push this too far.
