Visibility Unclassified

Jouni Raunio, Tampereen Ursa

The spring weather was pretty bad and this was a bit surprisingly the last picture of the season. This new destination will probably start again after the summer. Even partially new (DIY) iron is in the game then.

      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.
