Color for M42
« on: 2017 February 21 05:57:42 »
What is the key method in trying to get the red color in M42.

I have worked M42 for some time now and I only see a blue or white color.  Maybe brown.  But no red.
Examples of what M42 should look like show lots of red around the center.

Perhaps there is one feature of pixinsight that will do that for me.

It is common to add H-alpha to the red channel. That is going to affect the color balance.
