Visibility III / V

Vespera's drive-in the other night.

I took the North American fog as my target, in just five minutes the fog was drawn beautifully on the screen, I decided to test with a longer exposure, when there is time, and there is no rush for anything. At the same time, I take a landscape star picture with my phone.

      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.
