Description

A Study of the Heart and Soul Part 7 of 9 - Westerhout 5 - The Soul Nebula

In December 2020, I spent many nights shooting a monster 18-panel mosaic of the H&S region with the small WO Z61 refractor. I wanted to capture not only both main nebulas, but also the faint nebulosity that surrounds them and streams out of them.

This penultimate image from the study is a crop from the larger mosaic of the Heart Nebula.
