9/9/2021 The Fish Head Nebula

This is the Fish Head Nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is an emission nebula meaning it is glowing rather than reflecting light from nearby stars. It a small part of a larger star forming region which includes the Heart and Soul Nebulae. In this picture, it does look like a fish head facing right.
I shot this Thursday evening with my 11″ SCT at f/6.3 with a dual narrowband filter. This was made from 90 one minute images.
