Soul Nebula – IC1848

The Soul Nebula (IC1848, Sh2-199, LBN667), looks more like a toddler if you ask me. The companion of the Heart Nebula, both expansive emission nebula difficult to observe visually but a rewarding catch on chip.

Unlike the usual narrowband composites, this is an RGB image with Ha used as luminance channel. I will have to improve the processing to get rid of the unnatural bright-red highlights that result from using Ha as luminance.

Exposure: Ha 16 x 1800sec + RGB (16,16,16) x 900sec Date: 2015-11-24…2015-12-03
Setup: Takahashi FSQ106 EDXIII with QSI 683WSG-8 Site: Deep Sky West Observatory, NM, USA
