Description

These nebulae near the star Alnitak in Orion really are lean on the OIII output, in fact so much so I wasn't getting hardly any image of the nebulae through my OIII filter. So I switched over to my H beta filter which provided me with about the same amount of nebulosity as the SII filter. The pallet used then was a HSHb instead of the more common HSO.
