Awesome Rick. How did you map the filters?

Thanks, Albert!  It's a straight Red=Sii, Green=Ha, Blue=Oiii combine followed by a little tweaking with ColorMask:

- ColorMask Green: CurvesTransform Green-, Blue+
- ColorMask Yellow: CurvesTransform Red+
- ColorMask Magenta: CurvesTransform Red-

Cheers,
Rick.
