Image of the Month for March 2020: The Orion Nebula

M42 in narrowband Ha Sii Oiii
 

The Orion Nebula, Messier 42. The raw data for the image is Ha, Sii and Oiii. The image maps the channels RGB (the Oiii (blue) signal has been adjusted to remove the magenta cast caused by the (red) Ha component.

Image of the Month for February 2020: The Rosette Nebula

Rosette Nebula in False Colour Narrowband Ha, Sii, Oiii

 Rosette Nebula in the Hubble Palette

Two different processings of a narrowband image of the Rosette Nebula in Monoceros. The raw data for both images is Ha, Sii and Oiii. The first one maps the channels RGB (the Oiii (blue) signal has been adjusted to remove the magenta cast caused by the (red) Ha component. The Sii areas are golden. The second processing uses the 'Hubble Palette' which is often used for images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope.
