Hi all,

An image of the Heart Nebula (IC 1805) has been uploaded. This image has meant over 99 hours of exposures (a three panel mosaic) through narrowband filters and short RGB exposures to give the stars a more natural color.

This area is creating stars at a high rate and, actually, nearly all bright spots in the picture are YSOs (Young Stellar Objects).

This is a classic image, taken with a high resolution telescope, that shows the fine differences between areas with different compositions, thanks to the use of the Hubble Color Palette. Also a “Natural Color” version is included.

You will find more info and the images at:
