This is my first try with the Hubble palette since I got my new Astronomik filters last week (Ha, OIII, SII @ 6nm).
Unfortunately the Ha signal was acquired using my old Astronomik which suffers terribly of halos around bright stars..thank god this has been the last time I used it and will be replaced with the new one starting already this week!
Hope you like it, despite the halo rings that I couldn't remove more than I did in PixInsight :)
