Description

I am considering making a 4+ panel mosaic of the Heart Nebula, which would probably take me the rest of the month -- this would be the upper right corner. What do you think?

This version was processed with some simulated H-beta in the blue, which gives it a different color tone than my center of the heart nebula picture, so it is HaRO3GHaO3B. I guess that I will shoot S2 later and make it HaS2RO3GHaO3B.
