I am with you surrounding the earlier discussion of RGB vs narrowband.
However, I do understand and respect the need for the latter when
someone is burdened with light-pollution.
As a result, RGB is my modus operandi for now given my decent skies.

I just got a chance to look at your image. I think it is very nicely
exciting, even though it is a RGB image! :-) :-)

I have always had a weakness for the Veil complex and last night I
sat down to acquire 4.5 hours of total exposure data (LRGB @
90:60:60:60) for the southeastern portion which comprises of NGC 6995
and IC 1340. I would have liked a little more RGB exposure data but
the OTA and pier got too close for comfort.
The result is available at
<http://www.perseus.gr/Astro-DSO-NGC-6995.htm> ... it is one of the
relatively few situations where green does show up as part of the
visual spectrum in relation to a DSO object.
