Description

I had processed this data last year in HaLRGB but wanted to come back to it and process in LRGB. I was surprised by how much detail came out in the relatively few sub-frames I captured in each color. While not as much detail as the Ha data, there is a much more natural look to the image and Alnitak is allowed to shine in its full brilliance. I cropped the upper left which had Alnilam in the image because it was kind of overpowering the nebula.
