    Orion (constellation) widefield RGB + H-Alpha.

    The RGB data was taken in the north of thailand with pretty dark skies and good to very transparency.
    The H-Alpha was shot from the balcony in my home town in germany, with only suburban skies and medium to bad transparency. For all frames I used f2,8 @ ISO 800.

    I blended the H-Alpha data into the red channel with the max-operator while the data was still linear.
