I added in RGB stars from an RGB image I have of this same object.
Great image Bernard. I am curious if the star color was separately captured or is it directly from the Ha and OIII.

I gathered enough data for a Hubble palette version of this one, but decided on trying a bi-color of Ha and OIII. I got the idea from Mark Hanson who has an observatory near mine and his version can be seen in this month's Astronomy Magazine. Anyway, I took an crack at it and I think it looks pretty cool. I may try the Hubble palette version, but there is not much SII in this object, even with 10 hours of data.
Comments and suggestions welcomed.
