Unfortunatly i messed up the color combination in the "original" hubble way, but i think this combination is also nice.
What do you think?

There is some luminance missing, but i wont be able to collect more data on this this summer, so this is my "final" version for this year ;)

PS: Wow i just seen the immense color noise in the image, i will try to create a more noise free version...
