HII Advice
« on: 2010 October 11 08:21:31 »
Hi folks,

I have recently acquired about 7 hrs of 1x1 RGB data of M31.  After processing, I was generally pleased with the result, but thought it lacked proper emphasis of the HII regions.  As such, I collected about 2.5 hrs of Ha data (1200 s ea.).

So...

I am wondering if integration of Ha data for HII emphasis is any different from normal Ha blending.  That is to ask:  should I just experiment with blending the Ha into the red channel with Pixel math?  Or is there a different procedure in this case?

Thanks for any advice,
Ken
Regards,
Ken
