Description

A preview from the Heart Nebula I shoot during my stay in Morocco. I do not like everything yet so all the data will get processed from scratch again when I have the time. The spikes were added with Photoshop and look a bit fake to me, the background is a bit messy but that can be nebula as well.

For broadband objects I traveled into the mountains for excellent conditions, for narrowband objects I stayed in Agadir and collected data from the garden from a friend were I stayed for a month.

This image has been done with a OSC camera combined with the STC Astro dual-narrowband filter. That filter seems to be working very well!

With many thanks to Hans Hoogkamer for providing me with this opportunity in general, providing the material, providing a stay and much more! Also thanks to Janina Martynaityte and her mother for providing the good care during my stay in Maroc. Could not have done this without them!
