Can I ask what process you used to get the pseudo SHO as the colour palette 🎨 is really good ? 


Yeah Bryan, I used Bill's narrowband normalization PixelMath to get the base colors and from there tweaked it with Curves Transformation. Bill explains it here in the video and there's a link to the PixelMath in the video description.

Greg- after I wrote my response to your post I thought you’d used Bill’s normalisation script - so great to hear that confirmed - I used same script on a NGC7000 image I took with same camera/filter combo as you and was really impressed with the way the script develops contrast and colour balance from the bicolour image.

Others using OSC + dual band filter should find the link you posted very  useful to help develop their images away from the rather flat red (ha) bias dual band can give.
