Description

For the past couple months I have been concentrating in the region around Perseus and Cassiopeia. Three recent image appear in this wide field image. They are: 1) the Heart Nebula, 2) the Soul Nebula, and 3) the Double Cluster. All of these are located on the left side of the image. As you can see, there are still plenty of other objects within Cassiopeia's reign.

I captured this around the same time I did the Soul Nebula but wanted to process that first. I tried to use flats for this image however I must have done something wrong as they made the image much worse. I successfully used flats with the telescope but this was taken using a Canan 50 mm camera lens (Nifty Fifty).
