Suuuuuuuper excited about this one!! Narrowband conquers that pesky light pollution once again!
I've been dying to image the Heart Nebula, and I finally got a whole bunch of nice Ha data on it. Color is coming next, once the wildfire smoke clears! 11 hours of data :D:D It took deconvolution quite well, which really brought out some nice detail.
