it is quite impressive for that short of integration time, makes you wonder what it would like with 10 hours for each channel

Re-Processed the same data with different results, this time, entirely in Prism. Better? I guess it's subjective but you can see more of the fine, wispy detail outside the main portion of the nebula in this version and there appear to be more stars.

Again, same data. 10 x 180 seconds for the Ha and OII filter and 9 x 180 seconds of SII (Prism rejected one of the SII images for elongated stars.) Ha, SII, OIII using the Hubble palette where SII is Red, Ha is Green, and OIII is Blue.
