Ha images were acquired,
reduced, and combined with MaxImDL. Color images were focused, captured,
and aligned with ImagesPlus. The
color and Ha images were then aligned in RegiStar and combined in
Photoshop (pasting the color image over the Ha background, blurring
the color image, and blending using Color mode). The final image
was adjusted (Levels, Curves) in Photoshop CS2. Gaussian blur was
applied through a layer mask smooth the image.
