Description

This image has been a great challenge. Lots of data to be mixed up! For this capture I've done a synthetic luminance channel from Ha + OIII, witch became extremely important in this final (color) result.

The color image combines all channels, plus the synthetic L. ( Ha | OIII | L | RGB )

Beyond the Ha, OIII, L (synthetic) and RGB channel combination, I´  m also presenting my final results for both Ha and OIII, processed individually. I´  ve spent 30+ hours workig in this image. (my Spotify playlist also played a big roll here!)

Channels:

. Ha 29x1800;
. OIII 16x1800;
. R 36x300;
. G 24x300;
. B 30x300;
