IC1848 - Emission Nebula in Cassiopeia
Emission Nebula in Cassiopeia
  • Description: Index Catalogue entry 1848 is a rather large but faint nebula in Cassiopeia. Also known as LBN667, The Baby Nebula and the Soul Nebula, it is located next door to the Heart Nebula, IC1805. This shot is one of my first successful shots taken from within the city limits, most shots since 1986 I have driven out of town for. The filter used for this has a very narrow bandwidth blocking out most of the city light pollution. However, it requires long exposures!
