At the moment, I like this version better, even though some details are less clear. The color is closer to what it would really look like to the human eye, but with some variation in the red color coming from the O-III and S-II data.

Which version do you prefer?

Thanks, Russ. Since posting this I tried printing this version and find that the subtle color variation does not come through as well in a print, so I might still go with "B".

Yes I can see the difference in detail as I flash between the two versions.
For me I'm torn between the apparent "natural" color scheme and the higher detail and contrast but, color being subjective I think it's dealer's choice anyway.
Thanks for sharing.
