Here is another image I have been working on for the last month. I finally said it's enough. It's almost 30 hours. I started with 1x1 but later switched to 2x2 binning. Seeing doesn't support my ridiculous 0.365"/pixel image scale. 

 

For processing, I must have started from scratch 3 times. I never got it to where I wanted it and finally said this is as good as it's going to get with what I have. It's LRGBHO. Every layer of the ring is a different palette. The core is RGB, the main ring we are all familiar with is H, next blueish layer I call the second ring is Oiii heavy and the outermost (red) layer is Ha heavy mixed in with Oiii. The HA was used as L over the whole thing with different levels of stretch. And RGB star layer was laid over the entire filed for star color. I used Photoshop for all above. Preprocessing and color combinations were done in PI

let me know what you think. Sometimes when you look at the same image for too many hours, you lose perspective.

Thank you. I gave up on 1x1. Now I am doing 2x2. I see no difference on days above 1" seeing.

Excellent image, you have blended the bright centre ring and the really faint outer ones very well. No artifical looking border, well done.

Cheers,
Ian

Thanks Ian. Yes I paid very much attention to the blend of different brightness levels in different layers
