IC 1805 - Heart Nebula
The Heart Nebula is an emission nebula approximately 7,500 light years away in Cassiopeia. The huge cloud, which consists mainly of hydrogen, is illuminated by an open cluster of massive stars near the bright central knot. This narrowband image, caputured by Sam Saeed from his backyard in the middle of urban Southern California, is shown with the “Hubble Palette” where SII is mapped to red, Ha is mapped to green and OIII is mapped to blue.
Total exposure time for this remarkable image was 22 hour using a QSI 583ws on his Takahashi FSQ 106-ED at f/3.65. The final image is comprised of 28 15-minute sub-exposures in Ha and SII plus 32 15-minute sub-exposures in OIII using Astrodon narrowband filters.
