Description

Cat's Paw nebula in fake SHO as I use the zwo 294mc which is an OSC camera

Used Astropixel Processor and made a mono version of the image as the sulphur channel then did ha extraction and O3 extraction, recombined using the SHO rgb combination and tweaked the colours I didnt want the hubble pallet but wanted to bring out the blues and greens in a golden hue

Starnett++ to remove the stars which I used later in a star mask. Worked on the nebulosity in Photoshop re-added the stars using the linear dodge blend.
