“He tried to write One Hundred Years early on. At the beginning he called it his mamotreto [bulky notebook]. It was not spoken of; he could not write it. He knew the novel needed a writer with more experience, so he waited until the day he became the writer capable of writing One Hundred Years. It has to do with command of technique. You need a great deal of technique to write a novel like that. He knows the tale; he has the characters and storyline; but he couldn’t write it. You have a novel that has to be typewritten, but you can’t type, so you have to wait until you learn to type it up; the novel is there, waiting.”

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. 0 notes Reblog
