The stars are forming in the soul of the Queen of Ethiopia. More specifically, in a large star-forming region called the Soul Nebula that can be found in the constellation Cassiopeia, a constellation that Greek mythology identifies as the arrogant wife of a king who long ago ruled the lands around the upper part. of the Nile river.

The Soul Nebula contains several open star clusters, an intense radio source known as W5 and huge bubbles formed by winds from massive young stars.

Located about 6,500 light years away, the Soul Nebula covers about 100 light years. It is usually photographed next to the neighboring nebula of the Heart (IC 1805).

This is my version in SHO, the signal on all three channels is quite intense, so the processing has been relatively simple.
The sky finally cleared and I was able to take good shots although the conditions were still very changing in terms of humidity and temperature.
I could not add RGB data because I have not yet received the filters.
Personally I am happy with the result, I hope you like it.
Merry Christmas and best wishes to all.
