In the image above I have used green as green, the uí as the blue and, h alpha as red, the h alpha wasnít a good choice of filter and is grainy where Iíve turned up the noise as well as the data.

However, you can clearly see that there are pink areas which are bright in both H-alpha and UV, these are hydrogen rich star forming regions
