Description

UPDATE: Thanks to Plate Solving, turns out that IC1795 is often called the Fish Head Nebula - so I'm renaming this photo. Such a beautiful part of the sky!

The Southwestern (bottom left) portion of IC1805 (The Heart Nebula) reminds me of a Koi fish jumping out of the cobalt blue at the heart of the nebula, with its tail curled in at the bottom.
