IC1805 – Heart Nebula

IC 1805 – The Heart Nebula, 2021-10-16.

My third imaging session. Setting up, balancing and polar alignment is getting easier. Tried longer exposures since I was aiming for the Heart Nebula. I think I need even longer exposures, dedicated astro camera or something else to get more details and colors.

30x240s, ISO1600, bortle 4. Mostly clear skies. Total integration time of 2 hours.

Skywatcher Evostar 80ED Pro+focal reducer 0,85x and Canon 60D on Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro with Skywatcher Evoguide 50ED and ZWO ASI 120 MM Mini. Image processing with DSS and PI.
