Deep Sky B33 (Horsehed Nebula) revisited

Found my old data that I thought I had deleted on the Horsehead nebula and decided to try reprocessing it using the NB Colour Mapper script.
So far, turned out fairly nice. Still playing with tweaking some of the settings for that script.

Same data reprocessed using the FORAXX PixInSight script (BlurXterminator & NoiseXterminator applied).

Have another 2 hours of the Horsehead nebula data obtained ( the clouds are killing me), With the currently incessant cloud cover, this additional time was MOST welcome.
This is the target processed with the NB Color Mapper script in PixInSight. The rig used was the ZenithStar 103mm and the ASI533MM Pro optical train.

This is the same data processed with the Foraxx script in PixInSight.


I do plan on working on masks in PI so that I can "enhance" some of the colors in the images. I'm hoping (since tonight shows on my sky app to be "clear") to get a few more hours in.
I have also been working on capturing some LRGB to add to the image.
Have a few more hours in on this target thanks to two decent nights recently.
All capture settings are the same as original post, just more time.
This image was processed using PixInSight and color combination (HOO) then stretched with HT and BlurXterminator and NoiseXterminator used.
