The Heart and Soul Nebula (IC1805 and IC1848)

This is a first light image of a telescope that I had for a couple of weeks. Taken in the Hydrogen-Alpha narrowband wavelength of light (only a medium red), this is the heart and soul nebula. Just 50 minutes of total exposure time from an 8” Carbon Fibre Sky-Watcher “Quattro” Newtonian.

    to be honest Soul Nebula is in opposite direction. Heart shape of Heart Nebula should be also rotated 90 deg left
