Description

Still a work in progress, I’ve completed the hydrogen and oxygen data for all 12 panels and merged them through Pixinsight’s Photometric Mosaic tools, then processed with Starnet to remove the stars, highlighting the regions chaotic nature.  Presented in HOO, this image stands out presenting a unique and often unseen window into star formation and cosmic flows.   

Now begins the grueling task of processing the endless amounts of RGB data.
