IC1318 is a wide diffuse nebulae complex laying in the constellation of Cygnus. It's part of the Great nebular complex of Cygnus, one of the most big and massive in our galaxy. [Wiki]

I've used the same raw data of IC1318 SHO to create a synthetic RGB representation, mixing SII, Ha and OIII:
R = 0.2 * Ha + 0.8 * SII
G = 0.1 * Ha + 0.9 * OIII
B = OIII

Raw data kindly provided by Davide Coverta.
