Orion nebulae and Barnard’s Loop

Orion constellation is full of amazing nebulae. It’s also  my favorite deep sky region. This December 2021 I’ve been focused on capturing images of the C/2021 A1 (Leonard) comet. This image is a spin-off image captured while waiting for the comet to rise above the...
IC 1805, Heart Nebula

IC 1805, Heart Nebula

In the Perseus arm of our galaxy we find two spectacular nebulae, the Heart (IC 1805) and Soul (IC1848) nebulae. Located around 7,500 light years away from us both cover a wide region of the night sky, in the Cassiopeia constellation. Both nebulae have high emission...
