The Flaming Star Nebula in Hubble palette:

In this image I've used the standard Hubble palette to colorize the nebula.
G = Ha

The OIII emission of this nebula is really fleble, so the OIII signal had to be enhanced a lot.
The composition was made following my tutorial here
Image B is the H alpha signal
Image C is the OIII alpha signal
Image D is the SII alpha signal
