Description

My take on the Vela SNR in NB.

It's a huge and facinating region of space, with strong O3 & Ha present.

The S2 is only subtly different to the Ha emission line, so quite difficult to process to yield a true tricolour image.

That being said, I'm happy with this as last - inspired by marvelous versions from Strongman Mike Sidonio, Rakibul Hasan, Paul Haese & Marco Lorenzi.

Ha = R, O3 = B, S2 = G approx 6.5 hrs of each in 30min subs - total of around 20hrs.

Can't help but think it reminds me of the Holy Grail, clip clop, clip clop
