Data from POSS-II Survey and David Lindemann

To improve colors and details, I have used an hybrid color palette composed by narrowband, red and blue data that shows together primary and complementary colors along a continuum.

Additional SHO data have been captured in Summer 2013

Captured 08/03/2015 with Takahashi FSQ106ED @f/5 530mm focal length with ONAG XT (, Apogee Alta U8300 monochrome @-30°C and Astrodon narrowband H-alpha 5nm filter on 10micron GM2000 HPS II

8 x 10 minutes unbinned = 1h20

POSS-II Survey ( 9 panels of 60x60 arc/min for Red and Blue data)

Cannistra Bicolor Technique:

Software: MaximDL to capture - CCDStack to calibrate, register, normalize, data reject and combine - Photoshop CS5 and PixInsight for non-linear streching, star reduction, color combine and adjustment.
