Description

While preparing a talk on astrophotography for my local astronomy club, I reprocessed an old dataset to show narrowband color palette choices. The data, while limited, was actually pretty nice and I decided to make a composite image.

The four panels are:

Bottom left: SHO palette (R: SII, G: Ha, B: OIII)
Bottom right: Modified SHO (Hubble palette)
Top left: Natural palette (R: 0.75*SII+0.25*Ha, G: OIII, B: 0.1*Ha+0.9*OIII)
Top right: HOS palette (R: Ha, G: OIII, B: SII)

Full details about the data were presented here: Cygnus Wall (NGC 7000)
