Outstanding image!

What method do you use for colour calibration? Last year I captured the same target and processed it with PixInsight using photometric colour calibration, but my result was much more yellow and not as natural looking as yours...

Thanks Peter. I will think about Ha, but for now I'm rushing a few other targets I really want first. I'm only getting a couple of hours before it clouds up after sunset. Silly weather.
