Processing Infornmation This Narrow Abnd (Ha-SII-OIII) and LRGB images were obtained using AstroDon filters. The Ha-SII-OIII
and LRGB images were assembled in CCDStack. The two images were combined to form a 7 channel image in Photoshop.
Further stretching, high pass filtering and background smoothing was performed with Adobe Photoshop CS/4. All data stretching
was by minimal stretching with gamma and DDP in CCD Stack and then further stretching with curves/levels in photoshop.
