      Description

      The Heart and the Soul
      What a beautiful region of deep space. I was inspired by Fabian Neyer's rendition of this area, and wanted try my hand at a broadband mosaic of these nebulae. There appears to be faint reflection that surrounds the left of the Soul, which was really neat to see. As well as the cascade of dust that envelopes the Heart, this region is just rich with detail.
      This was a very rewarding project to complete, and easily my biggest to date.
