IC 1805, the Heart Nebula. I’ve been wanting to redo this object for quite some time and man it was a challenge yet again. I finished data collecting over a month ago and despite a few days of trying, just couldn’t find an edit I was happy with. So I let a month go by and came back again. I’ve even sent this image around to a few renowned imagers to get their opinions because I felt, and still kinda feel like this image is just, missing something. But I don’t know what! So drop your thoughts in the comments below.
