Description

This is the centre of the Heart Nebula containing the star cluster Melotte 15.

I was hoping to collect data all night on this object - that would have been a first for me - but the predicted clear skies came to end at 10pm! Still the early evenings meant I still managed to get 1.75 hours of Ha and an hour each of O and S. I was processing this with the intention of ending up with a Hubble pallet but I liked this intermediate result so much I stopped at this point.
