I recently switched from OSC to mono cameras. This is my first attempt at narrowband combination.

I don't usually like the red/blue aesthetic of the veil nebula that is commonly used, so I went for a HSO palette with synthetic green.

Very nice image.

 

Satisfy my curiosity- why did you go choose HSO over HOO?

 

You can apply HA & OIII to RGB mapping by using HOO and this still subscribes to the Hubble pallete with a bit of tweaking. I'm in no way questioning your workflow just trying to understand why you went HSO instead of HOO

 

I'm curious if HSO is better than HOO?

You're giving me more credit than I deserve!

 

I tried both and liked the HSO result best.

 

I'm used to shoot with an OSC camera and a dualband filter and all my previous pictures are basically red so I picked the result that looked different lol.gif

 

Not very "scientific" but after all I'm just trying to make pretty pictures!

 

When my skills will have evolved and I'll have a better mastery of the process I can probably be more deliberate with my choices.
