Description

This was a combination Hubble Palette image using the S2 and O3 data from my back deck and taken with the Tak FSQ 106EDXlll and the higher resolution H-alpha subs taken with the RCOS 16". The wider field shots of the FSQ were registered to the narrow-field subs of the RCOS. This was a tone-mapped image, so the color came from all three starless SHO images and the detail from the higher resolution subs taken at the SRO with the RCOS.
