Just a bit of fun - but the underlying deep-sky image data is very interesting. This is a multiframe mosaic of data processed from the DSS2 red and blue channels. I created an artificial green channel using Noel Carboni's Astronomy Actions and then put the lot together to give a "real" colour image. The colour is not as good as I get using the one shot colour camera (which has RG&B channels) but it ain't too far out.
