Here is IC 410 in the Hubble Palette. This type of imaging is still very new to me, but I must say I am REALLY enjoying it. The acquisition stage is much the same, but the PROCESSING, my God - what a treat to map these monochrome images to RGB. It's magic!

Thanks for looking and would love some CC!
