Modified Hubble Palette SII=12x30min (R) Ha=12x20min (G) OIII=12x20min (B) Channels calibrated, registered and stacked with DeepSkyStacker Final processing in Photoshop CS3: Curves/levels stretching, color combined using JP Metsavainio's "Tone Map" method, high pass filter, smartsharpen filter This was the second image taken with an OAG. I'm loving the results, because I'm speding much less time processing the image because the raw data is so much better.
