Very little was required in post processing. The images were stacked in pixinsight. Some light noise reduction was applied prior to stretching the image. After this the monochrome Hydrogen alpha and Oxygen III pictures were combined into an HOO format to get this color image.
this is LDN1369. The center of the heart nebula. It is rich in ionized hydrogen, oxygen and sulfur gases along with dark dust lanes. It is such a beautiful and dynamic region of the sky. I have wanted to shoot this area for sometime, and couldn't be happier with the results
