I really like this image a lot. It has so much detailed structure to it.

The processing is wonderful Anthony, and it makes this a very special piece of Imaging.

I would see this as an APOD candidate. Beautiful.

Ron.:rolleyes:

Earl, thats the colours produced by the narrowband filters, most Hubble narrowband images are similar.

Antony, that is one of your finest images yet I would say, very nice indeed.

I wanna inform you that this is my first image with the new CCD ATIK 314L+ camera that i have won in the annual competition of ATIK before 1 month.

Dalglish,

The Hubble Pallette assigns S11, Ha and O111 filtered images respectively to the red, green and blue channels. It is intended to bring out structural details in a false colour image. What is excellent (among other things!) in Anthony's image is the lack of unpleasant star haloes which can plague this combination.

This is quite exceptional stuff.

I think the set point cooling and better physical shape of the 314L will be an advantage in your setup and in Greek summers, Anthony!

Olly
