The Soul Nebula is a large emission nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia. It is commonly imaged with the nearby Heart Nebula as a nebula pair, not unsurprisingly called the Heart and Soul Nebulae such as my rendition here.
The Soul Nebula is a vast star forming region and is located about 7000 light years away, in the Perseus Arm of our galaxy, outward from the core.
Imaged with Takahashi FSQ85 refractor – at native focal length – and QHY268C colour camera on MESU 200 mount and OAG. Image comprises 42 x 3 minute exposures to give a total integration time of just over two hours.
