The source data was taken with a Takahashi FS-102 and a SXV-H9 CCD camera using Baader NB Filters. Ha 16*1200 Binned 1X1 [OIII] 12*1200 Binned 1X1 [SII] 10*1200 Binned 1X1
I put this montage together to demonstrate the various ways narrowand data can be processed, by assigning to diferent color channels, to accentuate the chemical compositions of the emissions. Clockwize from the top: 1. Ha[OIII] Bicolor 2. RGB = Ha[SII][OIII] 3. HST ( RGB=[SII]Ha[OIII] ) 4. CHFT ( RGB = Ha[OIII][SII] )
