South of Orion - NGC1999 thumbnail
08-Jan-2018
NGC 1999 is a dusty blue reflection nebula, embedded in the hydrogen dust cloud of Orion. This narrow band enhanced image shows the light blue NGC 1999 at the center, with the edge of M42 (the Orion Nebula) at the far right. Also shown in the image is the waterfall nebula, the magenta shock wave between NGC 1999 and M42.

Sh2-37 is a hydrogen emission nebula with two small blue reflection nebulae, embedded in a dusty background against the core of the Milky Way.

IC4603 and IC4604 Showing Rho Ophiuchi Color Transition thumbnail

Inside the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex live the star clusters IC4604 (left) and IC4603 (right). Heading towards the bottom of the image shows the transition from blue reflection nebulae to red emission nebulae. Interspersed are dark absorption nebulae, blocking the light from the stars behind them.

The Seagull Nebula a region of nebulosity that lies 1820 light years away, along the border between the constellations Monoceros and Canis Major. It includes the neighboring regions of star clusters, dust clouds and reflection nebulae centered around IC 2177.

Next to the Lagoon Nebula, there lies the often overlooked collection of absorption, reflection and emission nebulae: NGC 6559, IC 1274, IC 1275, IC 4684, IC 4685, Barnard 303, LDN 227, LDN 213, and planetary nebula PN M 1-41.

Trifid Nebula in HaLRGB thumbnail

Almost everyone has a go at imaging the Trifid nebula, which is composed of 3 different type of nebulae; emission, reflection, and absorption. When I noticed some faint red glow in the background, I decided to try integrating some long hydrogen emission line frames to see if I could get any structure out of it. I'm quite happy with the resulting background structures!
