IC1805 – The Heart Nebula

Here is another shot from my November 27th session: IC1805 the Heart Nebula. I spent over 2 hours on this target. I originally wanted to make a mosaic with the Soul Nebula but I would have had to sacrifice about 1.5 hours of exposure on the Heart. I wasn’t too sure if my work on the Veil mosaic would pay off and I chose to stick with the Heart for another couple of hours.
