Description

Hey everyone! So I am sure if you have spent any time on Cloudy Nights you probably noticed all the debate about the "narrowband" duals , triads, and quads. A lot of people are upset because they say manufactures claimed that these super expensive filters would allow you to take Hubble palette style images with your OSC, but they are no different then strong UHC filters. I thought I would play around with the processing and see what I could do, after about an hour of tweaking curves, levels, channels, and colors this is what I came up with.
**Oh and this is my first time using a DSLR ever since I got a cooled ZWO.
