The heart Nebula lies 7500 light years away in the Perseus arm of our galaxy. The nebula's red color is driven by the radiation emanating Melotte 15, Only 1.5 million years old, contains a few bright stars nearly 50 times the Sun's mass, plus many more containing only a fraction of a solar mass.

 

I imaged this, one evening from beautiful Bortle 3 skies at 3000 ft elev. I wanted to capture twice the time, but the second night was far too windy and dusty on top of the Mesa.

 

I then added L-Extreme data from my backyard a couple nights later.

Synthetic S2, I guess you can say that. I assigned ha- Red. O3- blue.    .5red+.5blue - green channel. Hope this makes sense.

Great image. Is the image above output from L-extreme or did you integrate with UV/IR sub? I am also using the 533 with L-extreme, and working to figure out best way to integrate L-extreme with RGB subs

Thanks Monty. Yes it's both L-Extreme and Uvir data. Check out Visible Dark Ca. Shawn Nielsen. He has utube video showing how to combine both sets of data.
