Description

These bicolor images of the Veil Nebula were generated using the SHO-AIP script in PixInsight to combine narrowband Ha and OIII images obtained using an Optolong L-Enhance dual narrowband filter. These NB processed versions turned out much sharper than the version processed using my standard RGB workflow. I like the unnatural colar variations, but my favorite is the HOO palette which gives close to the natural color scheme but looks much better than my RGB processed version.

Version 1 = HOH palette (red=Ha, green=OIII, blue=Ha)
Version 2 = OHO palette (red=OIII, green=Ha, blue=OIII)
Version 3 = OOH palette (red=OIII, green=OIII, blue=Ha)
Version 4 = HOO palette (red=Ha, green=OIII, blue=OIII)
