Narrowband Hubble palette image of the Horsehead and Flame nebulae. In this and other narrowband HST images of mine, I do not attempt to eliminate all of the dominant Ha green in order not to suppress its color combinants with SII red and OIII blue, namely yellow and cyan. Ha and SII are dominant in this image.
