NGC 7000 - 13.11.2022 at 00.10 Kangasala Observation number 110766

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I was spending a cabin weekend at Kuhmajärvi when unexpectedly, after a long gray period, beautiful clear weather came.
Even at night it was clear, although quite windy, so I decided to photograph something with my travel equipment.
I noticed that I hadn't taken a so-called 'decent' picture of the North American haze in the 20 years I've been a photography star enthusiast.
As an anecdote , a picture of the North American fog taken with a film camera 20 years ago.

      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.
