Visibility III / V

Oskari Syynimaa, Lakeuden Ursa

The nights will lighten up, but I'll have time to get a reasonable blur for this first observation season with the camera. :) So in the picture Swan's North America fog. The exposure time was a total of one hour and 55 minutes.

      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.


      Emssion nebulae in Cepheus. The bigger part is composed of the nebulae Cederblad 214 (Ced214) and NGC 7822. The lower round nebula is called Sharpless 170 (Sh2-170). Image J-P Metsävainio.

      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.

Hyvin näkyy sumu ja tämä on mukava saada kuviin näin keväiselläkin! Yleensä pohjois amerikka kausi on syksyllä.

Kiitos Olli! Joo, syksyllä näitä Joutsenen sumuja on varmasti helpompi kuvata. :)
