Heart Nebula

Post by h2opolo » Wed Apr 24, 2019 5:17 pm

Here is the center of the Heart. I shot this a while back and never processed it. Well actually I did but it sucked so bad I forgot about it. So here it is with a year of processing under my belt.

It's 26x1200 in HA, 22x1200 in OIII and 18x1200 in SII

Hope you like it.

Sean

Great processing Sean. I like the subtle variations in color towards the middle. Nice work.
Clear Skies!

Thanks Mike. believe it or not I shot this over a year ago and it looked so bad that I never posted it. I went through old data last week looking for images with a lot of subs and found this and reprocessed it. I guess a year of Pixinsight has paid off. I'll have to post the original so you can see what I'm talking about.

Thanks again . Sean
