Really deep in the Heart of IC 1805.

40 hours of Narrowband data captured with the RASA 8" at F/2 and gathered over 2 months (11 nights) from Southern Germany. I wanted to show as much surrounding nebulosity as possible so I went really deep on the H-alpha data at over 17 hours.

Thanks for looking, comments are appreciated and clear skies everyone!
