Kevin notes that he was trying to ensure the NGC 896 component of the Heart Nebula was included in this image, which meant he had to truncate the lower portion of IC 1805... Ha and OII filters with synthetic green formed by multiplying these two together. Ha was also used as Luminance.  The Moon was nearly full but was not near the target (and of course narrowband wins).

Dates of capture: Sept. 11, 2019,  Sept. 12, 2019,  Sept. 15, 2019,  Sept. 19, 2019,  Sept. 20, 2019 (7.5 hours total data)

Martin reports some very nice seeing in Hertfordshire recently which gave him his best Saturn image of the season.  The planet was at an altitude of 16 degrees.  A straight RGB image, an IR image using a 642nm filter were combined to produce an L(IR)RGB composition finished image.
