Description

My processing of a DSW data set from hydrogen alpha and O III narrowband data acquired during May and June 2018.

The hydrogen alpha and O III data were combined as h-alpha, O III and O III for the red, green and blue channels respectively.

Total integration time was 17.5 hours.
Hydrogen alpha - 18 x 1800 seconds
O III - 17 x 1800 seconds
