Description

The Flaming Star Nebula, with Ha combined with the data from the red filter.

I'm still experimenting with my new ZWO ASI1600mm and how to process mono images, so this will definitely be refined. However, I really like how adding Ha to the red channel brought out the detail in this beautiful object. It looks tangible and three dimensional!
