Product Description

To generate the color, the three emission-line images were first histogram-normalized, so that they each covered the same total range of brightness. These were then combined into an RGB image, and finally the H-alpha data was used for the luminance (brightness) channel.
Note: This panoramic image has a slightly different aspect ratio that our standard framed images.
