Here's the Rosette Nebula in the SHO Hubble Palette. I generally do my SHO as Ha --> 30% red, 60% green, Oiii --> 100% blue, 20% green, and Sii --> 70% red, 20% green. It seems to work out pretty well. Anyway, here's my take on it with me trying to bring out structure in the nebula. It's a cool object. Data is from telescope.live as usual at this time of year with my 2.5 months of clouds.
