Continuing to look for interesting compositions, I wanted to explore this space in between; there's quite a bit going on here. I included enough of the Heart Nebula so it's clearly recognizable, to set the context for the viewer. Thus, it's unusual but you're not lost.

There's something on my OIII filter which shows up as a "smudge" on the right side of the Heart. Need to get it out and examine/clean it. I probably will reshoot the OIII, and then I want to add SII and create a SHO rendering.
