Description

This image was produced from my starless tone mapped Ha green, OIII blue, SII red channels and Master Luminescence Ha (starless) enhanced with OIII and SII. I then added the stars in from a separate RGB session. This very rich star field made the tone maps extremely challenging. It was my first attempt using this technique. It took about a month and a half to sort through it.
