This image consists of the same narrowband data as used for the SHO version except that the SII/HII were used as RED and the GREEN and BLUE channels from OIII subs were used as their real colors. The end result ended up looking way too red so I toned down the red hue to finish on this photo of the Tarantula Nebula.
