Posted by Stellarvue on 23rd Jan 2020

This week's IC1805 StellarShot was submitted by Tim Cardin. To "Own the Night" Tim used his Stellarvue SVX80T-3SV. IC 1805 is an emission nebula located at an approximate distance of 7,500 light years from Earth, in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is 150 arcminutes in size and known for its intensely red glowing gas and dark dust lanes forming a shape that resembles a heart symbol. Thanks for sharing with us Tim.
