Description

This is a more traditional processing of my prior Hubble Palette data...

Hubble Palette Version

...OIII-SII-Ha-RGB with a bit more attention to maintaining the true color of the stars – even within the nebula. (-:

This adds 1800s x 7 OIII subs for a bit smoother and deeper in the OIII region. Also added 1800s x 4 SII. That helped a bit with the subtle coloring in the background.
