Orion HaRGB

Orion Nebula from AUS-2 One-Click Observations. This is my first HaRGB image where I have used two One-Click RGB observations and then enhanced the red channel using Halpha data from two One-Click HSO observations. I intentionally did quite heavy processing on the nebulosity to reveal details. Thanks for inspiration to great wide field photos posted here just recently.

I had quite a few versions but you just have to stop at some point. Happy to hear comments on what to improve.

I created the base HaRGB in PixInsight. Then I removed the stars and worked on the starless version mostly in Photoshop. Starless version and stars were merged back in PixInsight.

Wow, that is stunning Jarmo. The Ha/RGB combination is superb and really brings out the details of the region surrounding M42. Cameron :-)
