Description

Hi everyone,

I wanted to work around the restrictions of my FOV being a little too small for the entire thing and find a way to create a fresh perspective on the Heart Nebula without doing a mosaic this time. Playing around with the wizard and rotations in SGP I discovered this perspective that reaches from the core of the heart (Melotte 15) to the tip of it - the Fish Head Nebula (NGC 896). Personally I'm happy with how it turned out especially since I'm really fond of imaging juxtapositions of multiple objects.

I hope you enjoy my rendition :)
