This data was captured with Ha and OIII and processed with 100% Ha in Red, and 100% OIII in Green and Blue. I cropped of the surrounding nebula because I wanted to highlight and dig deeper by re-processing the core of M8.

Frames captured July, 2018:

Astronomik Ha: 72x180" (gain: 139.00) -20C bin 1x1
Astronomik OIII: 40x180" (gain: 139.00) -20C bin 1x1
