It is interesing to compare the M8 RGB image I took last night to this image, the detail is there but does'nt leap out like yours.
Well Justin, this is really the first time iVe done narrowband imaging. Usually I do Ha and then blend with RGB to get a good detailed luminace to add to the image, but this time since I had the new filters I thought that NB all the way was in order. Usually the detail is there and you just have to bring it out

Marc I obtain the same number of subs for each filter and then use the histogram to balance up each filter's contribution. I do RGB as SII, Ha, OIII
and then a little selective colour with Photoshop. There is a tutorial for it that I can dig up for you to follow.
