This is a natural color image containing around 15 hours of natural color (LRGB) exposure time, and another 10 hours of narrowband hydrogen-alpha which glows red. I used the hydrogen-alpha as the base of the luminance (structure) and enhanced that with the natural color for the structure of the blue reflection nebula. I also blended the H-alpha (which glows red) into the...wait for channel.
