The Heart of The Heart

IC1805, The Heart Nebula.

This is a large extended object and is really too large for my field of view without using a focal reducer, so this is really The Heart of The Heart or Melotte 15. This was 10 exposures of 300 seconds in each of RGB filters.
Taken with the Atik383L+ through my Avian Starseeker 100mm ED APO. I Used MaximDL 5.21 to do the imaging and also the guiding with a QHY5 camera snd the telescope guidescope.
MaximDL was also used for the calibration and stacking and the image was post processed in Photoshop CS3.
