I imaged this nebula on 10-28-22 with a Takahashi FSQ-130ED operating at a focal length of 650mm and a Canon Ra camera. Twenty-two light frames were taken at ISO 1600 for 300 seconds. I used 15 dark frames, 26 flat frames and several Bias frames. These frames were combined in Deep Sky Stacker and the resulting stacked image was processed in Photoshop. Tracking was performed with a 200mm focal length guide scope and ZWO camera. I used PHD2 for guiding in conjunction with APT software and dithering was used. I also used a light pollution filter on the imaging camera. The image was cropped to reduce the remnants of the Heart nebula. I imaged from my back porch in Illinois
