Sample Images

This is a gallery of recent images taken with the Rigel telescope. The color images are synthesized by combining several filters, typically clear ('luminance'), blue, green, and red. For many images, the red is replaced by a narrowband H alpha filter, and for some, green is replaced with a narrowband oxygen III filter.
