Sh 2-190 - The Heart Nebula 101106

Original Photoshop process of Sh 2-190, The Heart Nebula, with a stack of 23 ten-minute exposures at 1600 ISO on my modified Canon 450D in my cooler box. This was part of my foray into large dim DSOs in the middle of the Milky Way. Lots of stars in the background that are very difficult to minimize. This one turned out pretty good, but I was never entirely happy with this process. I'd tried various star removal tools with no success.
