Description

A full-spectrum narrowband image of IC2944 , the Running Chicken nebula, in HST palette. It is full-spectrum because I did not suppress all the Ha green, and so doing did not suppress the cyan and yellow tones, which are the Ha green color combinations with OIII blue and SII red.

Description: I redid this image by removing the stars, completing the processing, and adding back the stars. It remains a full spectrum HST palette image, just better.
