Information from the author

This image is my first real attempt with the Hubble palette and my new mono camera. The Hubble Palette, named for an image processing technique done by the Hubble Space Telescope team, creates what is called “false colour” imaging by using narrow-band filters and assigning the data captured with each narrow-band-filtered channel to one of the red, green, or blue colours in an RGB image.
