IC1805 The Heart Nebula

This one is a composite of 2.5 hours of H-alpha from my QHY9 CCD and 2 hours of RGB from my modified Canon XSi DSLR. Both through my William Optics 66mm triplet at f5.6.

 

They didn't line up perfectly, but if you don't look to closely it's a reasonably nice blend of nebulosity from the h-alpha data and star colours from the RGB data.

 

Framed it just for kicks.
