The knot in the middle of the Heart Nebula. I used 2 hours of Ha exposures and combined them with around 2 hours of RGB. I was happy with the detail that I resolved in the nebula, the crispy clear night was a real help! I’m normally no patient enough to stick it out, but was meticulous on this night and I think it paid off.
