An Example of LRGB
The first image of NGC 5907 is the RGB only. It was taken in 3x3 binned mode to increase the sensitivity and enlarged to match the scale of the full resolution L channel image shown next. The result is shown at the bottom after the high resolution, high S/N, greyscale image is assigned to the luminosity layer. The improvement, as you can see, is significant.
