PixInsight For Dummies (Like Me!) | Part 6: Monochrome Workflow

In this episode we'll edit the Monkey Head nebula, which I captured with H-Alpha, Oxygen, and Sulphur filters. This will be turned into the Hubble Color Palette, which should show off the details of the nebula nicely!

This is going to be the longest workflow yet, but hopefully you're getting familiar with PixInsight by now.  Our object is the Monkey Head nebula, which I captured from the Olympic Peninsula this winter.  There's only about 2 hours worth of data, but that should still be enough for a nice photo.
