Processing Comments: The
Narrow Band Image was produced using the Hubble Palette (SII, Ha, OIII). The resulting NB image was then overlayed
in PS CS/e with another weak Ha layer, enhancing the nebulosity. Further processing such as data stretching, High Pass
Filter and Kodac Digital Gem in PS CS/3.
