color Scaled Tree HaRGB 54 27 24 25
I started shooting this with just narrowband Ha and then started on RGB since the moon was gone. Now way to get more for a while due to clouds so I thought I'd see what I could make of 54 Ha, 27 Red, 24 Green, and 25 Blue subs. (all 10 minute).
I tried lots of different mixes but it looked best using the Ha as the Luminance. Only thing was that it cam out grey since it was so different than all of the color data. But it really made the star pop! So I tried to make synthetic luminance by summing all of the RGB data equally. Then I added that to the Ha 50/50 and used it for the luminance channel in what you see. It allowed a little color to come in to the nebula bits.
If the clouds ever clear I keep shooting OIII and SII and see what happens. But I think I might like this better.
