I have not seen this too often.

What palette did you use (as it's so blue) ?

Hi Einarin.  Sorry for the delay in replying.  It’s a straight SHO combo, followed by colour adjustments as per Bob Franke.  I’m slightly allergic to green....

Thank you AP.  Yes, it was one of the fainter objects we targetted this last year.
