An experimental 3D-study of the Heart nebula, IC 1805

I haven't been able to open up this season yet, since some of my equipment are not yet back from the factory service.

This is an experimental test with a 3D-conversion of my astronomical images. Only real elements from my original image are used, there is nothing added but the volumetric information!

NOTE. This is a personal vision about shapes and volumes, based on some scientific data and an artistic impression.

NOTE. A largish image, about 7.5MB, let it load for few seconds.

Image in natural color is taken with the SW 80ED telescope, QHY8 astronomical camera and the Baader UHC-s filter. Exposure time ~5h.
