Description

Abell 36 is a small, faint planetary nebula in Virgo. This image is based on H(HO)O combination. Compared with RGB, the nebula reveals more color information (may reflect it's composition), while the stars appear very close to what RGB demonstrates, except for the fact that the H(HO)O combination is less saturated, and some stars are a little bluer. RGB combination is available upon request.

The versions B and C recovers some of the red color inside the nebula.
