Description

UPDATE for 29 DEC 15: Added a second panel to this image. This will be a 3 x 1 panel mosaic of the Flaming Star Nebula. This is only the Hydrogen Alpha and Near Infrared data for these two panels. Third panel coming soon. 2nd Panel is composed of 8 x 30 min exposures in Ha and 30 x 2 min exposures in NIR-Lum.

UPDATE 2 for today (6 DEC 2015): Changed the color palette to match Hubble palette. I think there is not enough blue in this and too much green. But, it is quite Christmasy!

UPDATE 6 DEC 2015: Added the OIII data after cleaning it up a bit and reprocessed the Ha and SII a bit more in PixInsight and Photoshop. Starting to look better. Just need some more clear skies so I can take a few more of each channel (Ha, OIII and SII). Thanks for looking.
==========================
Okay, trying my hand at mixing different channels to produce a color (or false color) image. This one is IC 405 - The Flaming Star Nebula. It includes Ha, SII and Near Infrared. I also captured some OIII but I think my data was too noisy so I did not include it in this edition. I will add OIII to it later. Ha is mapped to RED, SII is mapped to Green and Near Infrared is mapped to Cyan.
