Nebulosity stacked file Heart Nebula 18/11/2019 reprocessed 26/04/2020

I had a go at reprocessing my image of upper half of Heart Nebula (poor pointing of telescope missed bottom half!) from back in November 2019 – now that I am a little better at processing.

Of course – rubbish in, rubbish out – and this was my first sensible astronomy image, unguided, no flats or darks, with my QHY10 colour one-shot camera.

However, I am quite pleased with the result considering the appauling material I had to deal with…..and after some judicious cropping to remove awful parts of the image!!!!

Of course, I will be far more critical of myself in another year, once my skills improve!
