Description:

Collaboration of DSLR color and CCD Ha data to produce an image that uses the best of both. The two sets of data were registered and aligned in DeepSkyStacker and combined in Photoshop CS3. The combine method used is one described by Russell Croman. Layer masks were used to keep star colors true while allowing the Ha and RGB to combine in a way to optimize the nebula's appearance.
