Tarantula Nebula in color

This is the Tarantula Nebula, taken from my backyard on Nov 10 under heavily polluted skies. One can’t even see the LMC without aid!
It’s my first attempt at deep sky imaging at full magnification of my Celestron EdgeHD9.25 and using RGB filters for the first time!

This is
20x60s Red
20x60s Green
20x60s Blue
Processing in Pixinsight

I’m ultimately not sure what the colors are supposed to look like, but I like this take for a first attempt that took 2 hours to shoot and 5 to process.
