IC1805- Heart Nebula

Geoffrey Dryland

20/1/2016 & re-processing 23/1/2016


Hi All,

Moon was looking straight down the tube when I went to Orion so had a go at the Heart nebula instead, just about got it all in, well the main part anyway.

This is all narrowband filters as I didn't think it would work in RGB with the moon shining brightly.

  • Ha: 12x5min
  • O3: 12x5min
  • S2: 15x5min

All stacked in Deep Sky Stacker, then Fits liberator then messed about in Photoshop.

I'm sending 2 images. One with only the Ha (B&W), other in colour.

Redid the data in the Hubble palette 23/1/2016 - picture at bottom of page.
