M17 in narrowband (Hubble palette)
Messier 17 also known as the Swan Nebula or Omega nebula is located in the constellation of Sagittarius. The Nebula is composed mainly of ionized hydrogen. It is around 5,000 light years away from Earth and is one of the most massive star forming regions in the Milky Way galaxy. This false color image utilizes the Hubble palette that maps Ha to green, OIII to blue, and SII to red. Once the images from each filter are combined it creates an interesting photo. This was my first serious attempt at narrowband imaging and hopefully it will improve. The image consist of around 180 minutes of data from each filter.
