Was any post-processing done to this?
Yes, quite a bit, firstly the actual picture only captures about 0.012% of the visual light (Ha wavelength) so there is no color. Secondly it is a mosaic of the sharpest part of the 300 sharpest frames. then you sharpen that further and bring out contrasts using a special program. When that is done you bring out the colors using photoshop.
