M8 with different processing parameters


This is the same data as this narrowband image but with different channel assignments and blendng a small percentage of SII data into the red (HA) channel and HA blended slightly into the OIII Channel for blue. The green channel remains pure OIII. It preserves natural star colors and makes for a striking image. A comparison of the two images shows the flexibility of the narrow band imaging technique.
