12-3-2019 TSS Astrophotography Photo of the Day.
by Gordon

The Heart Nebula is a favorite of Astrophotographers and especially those who do a bit of narrowband imaging. Located in the constellation Cassiopeia it's glowing ionized hydrogen gas and darker dust lanes, make for a great photo. Todays TSS APOD winner has captured those qualities. Congratulations...
