Description

This nebula doesn’t get much attention, but has a lot going for it. Strong signals in all three narrowband channels and intricate structures. I uploaded a version of NGC 1763 several years ago, but this one has been upgraded in several ways. I’ve selected a more interesting field of view, greatly improved the local contrast of the nebular structures, and used StarTools to map an alternative to the Hubble palette.
