The following image is classified as Sh2-190, also known as The Heart Nebula. Sh2-190 is located about 7,500 light years from Earth. To render this image, I photo-stacked 51 x 1800 second exposures together from Deep Sky West, for a total of 24 hours of data—7.5 hours of sulfur, 8.5 hours of hydrogen, and 6.5 hours of oxygen). The sulfur is represented in the outer orange band, followed by hydrogen in green, and then oxygen in blue.
