I am starting an Astronomy Photo of the Month Section for Members to show some of the images that they have produced.
Callum Wingrove has kindly started us off with a fabulous selection of his recent photos.

 

This month  is the Soul Nebula (IC 1848/IC 1871), an emission nebula located to the East of the Heart Nebula (IC 1805) in Cassiopeia around 6,500 light years from Earth.  This is a ‘Hubble Pallette’ image, also known as SHO (Sulphur Hydrogen Oxygen) shot with a mono camera in late September.  Blue is Oxygen, Yellow is Hydrogen and Red is Sulphur.
