Visibility III / V

Jukka Koivisto, Suomenselän Pegasus

The evening was pretty clear, so I wanted to retake yesterday's Pluto but there was so much cloud on the horizon that it didn't become anything. I then photographed something like this North American fog.

      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.

Ihan kivasti näkyvät sumut. Sitten vaan lisäämään valotusta seuraavalla kerralla!

Kiittää kehuista! Yllättävän hyvän kuvan sain aikaan kun ottaa huomioon, että veti linssin huuruun ja huomasin sen vasta kun lopetin. Luulin kuvatessa, että syy on taivaalla kun kuvista alkoi kadota kontrastit.
