18hrs Ha 1x1 / 180s @ Unity
3hrs OIII 2x2 / 180s @ Unity

ASI 1600
ES 127 ED APO

For me, this one was tricky. I couldn't get a result I was happy with after initially looking at the data. So I sat on it for over a month before giving it another go. I probably should've gone back for more OIII but I was just done with this in my mind, especially after the editing struggle.

Thoughts?

Beautiful! I'd love to hear more about your processing steps that let you get that great blue OIII color.

I utilize a HARD stretch in the OIII channel, some of the time using a range mask in PI to target only the high signal areas and stretching it until it's ugly. A light stretch will give you white, and hard stretch will give you blue, after you combine of course. I use a 50/50 blend of Ha.OIII in pixel math.

Fantastic. I love the colors and the fine details in the fringe around the blue is incredible.
