Description

A Study of the Heart and Soul Part 4 of 9 - Fish out of Water

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. While I was doing that, I decided to home in the C11 on smaller, interesting regions of those nebulas as part of a more rigorous study.

This fourth image in the study is of IC 1795, The Fish Head Nebula.
