Description

A Study of the Heart and Soul Part 9 of 9 - Magnum Opus

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.

The final image of the study is the complete mosaic.
