This image comes from a combination of my narrowband H-alpha data and mapped data from the MAST database. Specifically it is three filters from the Pan-STARRS telescope. The Pan-STARRS data produced mapped star color and the H-alpha data, the red glow of the emission nebula.

Working with that data is a challenge and a pleasure. :-) Here is the link to the database.
MAST Database
Give it a try during these cloudy months.

If you need any guidance in using the database or working with their FITS files, send me PM.
