Abstract: We generalise the techniques of semistable reduction for flat families of sheaves to the setting of the derived category $ D^b(X)$ of coherent sheaves on a smooth projective three-fold $ X$. Then we construct the moduli of PT-semistable objects in $ D^b(X)$ as an Artin stack of finite type that is universally closed. In the absence of strictly semistable objects, we construct the moduli as a proper algebraic space of finite type.
