Soul Nebula, IC1848

Soul Nebula, IC1848
A well-known emission nebula about 6500ly distant in the constellation of Cassiopeia. There are several small star clusters in both the head and body segments, and the Westerhout 5 radio source acts as a "blast furnace" with its pressure triggering star formation.

55*300s = 4.5hr data made using a Skywatcher 80ED, QHY 268C, Optolong l-eNhance filter and NINA; processing happened mostly in PixInsight (with starnet++ 2 for star reduction) and darktable to finish.
