Fiona created this lovely wide-field view of the faint nebulae Heart and Soul near the centre of the field. She used a Canon 85 mm lens on a full-frame Canon camera. This is a rich field of stars, with open clusters, nebulosity, and dark nebula throughout. Note the Double Cluster at mid-bottom and comet C/2017 T2 to the upper right.
