Two separate sessions to capture this and took a lot of effort to process. 600 1 second subs were combined for the core PN lucky imaging technique and 120 30 second subs for the star field processed separately. Not too much integration time but I was surprised the faint outer shell was revealed a little bit, especially for the murky conditions caused by the wildfires. Needless to say a lot of cropping and zooming for this narrow FOV.

600 subs luminance, 150 each RGB for PN core

120 subs @ 30 seconds Luminance 30 subs each RGB @ 30 seconds star field

Captured with Nebulosity processed in PI & PS.

Great image, and with short exposure combined with a bit longer. Inspiring
