The Heart Nebula

The famous Heart nebula, IC1805, between Cassiopeia and Perseus.

This is a mosaic of 2 panels, each panel being an integration of around 12 hours of data captured on a QHY168C OSC camera with an STC duo-narrowband filter. The scope was a WO Zenithstar 102 mounted on a Skywatcher EQ6R. SGP was used to plan the mosaic and manage the capture of the data over several evenings. All the post processing was carried out in PixInsight.

Observed from Prachinburi, Thailand.
