NGC 7000 - 13.10.2021 at 21.24 - 13.10.2021 at 23.11 Kirkkonummi, Komakallio Observation number 101830

Visibility V / V

Samuli Vuorinen, Kirkkonummen komeetta

During the summer, I switched a notch to a larger star camera, and finally got to take the official first light with it. I targeted the classic North American fog, which is very hollow this fall. With the new camera, the field of view is so wide that it can also accommodate the adjacent Pelican Mist, i.e. the IC 5070.

In addition to the full view, I added a couple of details in 100% size to the observation. The other little bit sadly left a small satellite chip that I missed during the stacking phase, and I no longer wanted to leave to do the whole processing again because of the Streak.

      In an emission nebula the hot stars nearby cause the gas glow. This should not mix with reflection nebula, where the gas is only lit up by nearby stars.

      The appearance of a gas nebula is irregular, and the fainter parts of it need bigger instruments to be visible.

      In this 4-degree-field there are emission nebulae Sh2-157, Sh2-158, Sh2-159, Sh2-161 and Sh2-162 (or NGC 7635 aka Bubble Nebula) and open clusters M52 and NGC 7510. Image Juha Kepsu.

    • Dark nebula info

      Dark nebulae are dust in space. It obsruct the visibility of background star and bright nebulae. Thus, the dark nebulae are seen as dark clouds in space.
