Description

Another version of the Soul Nebula.

One of these days I'll learn my lesson and do the Soul before I do the Heart, because it's just...  Comparatively disappointing.  I mean, it's... Fine, but it's no Heart.

Also, I screwed up and accidentally captured about an hour more OIII than I'd intended (which is fine, it could use more OIII) instead of about an hour of SII (which isn't so fine, I'd rather have swapped Hɑ for SII instead). Oh, well, that's the problem with spreading out sequences so long, sometimes you just lose track.

Also, for the last night of Hɑ (the last 22 frames), I was having so much trouble with my guiding (...Not to mention adventures fixing it) that I just gave up on guiding altogether and let the model handle it.  And...  It was fine.
