Heart Nebula - IC1805

Ive been waiting to capture this for a few weeks now but it was either too low in the sky, too cloudy or I had to get up early the next day. Conditions were perfect last night so I stayed up imaging until 2am and shot 12 x 9 min subs all in Hydrogen Alpha.  Its still actually quite low in the sky here, about 38 degrees so I think more detail will be possible once its in its winter home.
