This is a low brightness object that is near the Crescent Nebula. Total time is 12 hours with 3 hours for each filter LRGB using 10 minute subs. Difficult to process but I like the star field.

We started this image in late August 2014 and finally captured the last bit of data we needed on August 13, 2015. So glad we kept all that old data :-) LDN (Lynds Dark Nebula) 1001, 1002 &amp; 1003 are dark nebulae found in the constellation Cygnus about 7 degrees 56 minutes 39 seconds southwest of the bright star Deneb. Also located in this region are some Herbig-Haro objects, specifically HH380, HH381, &amp; HH382. In addition to these jewels, we captured a hint of the Red Nebulous Object (RNO) 127. Dark nebulae, also known as absorption nebulae, are dark cloud regions, composed of sub-micrometer dust particles coated with frozen carbon monoxide and nitrogen gases, that effectively block the passage of visible light that lie behind them. These nebulae are great stellar nurseries where new stars are born. Herbig-Haro objects are small regions of nebulosity that are formed when narrow jets of gas are ejected by young stars collide with other nearby clouds of gas and dust at speeds of several hundred kilometers per second. These objects are often found around a single star and aligned with its rotational axis. Their lifespan is relatively short, lasting no more than a few thousand years. Herbig-Haro objects were first observed in the late 19th century, but not recognized until the 1940s when George Herbig and Guillermo Haro determined they were a byproduct of the star formation process.

The red emission nebula contains a bright blue star cluster near its center: it glows red because the ultraviolet light of the stars ionizes the hydrogen gas, which then recombines and emits the characteristic red hydrogen-alpha light. Further out, when the radiation from these hot young stars becomes too weak to ionize hydrogen, the gas and dust instead glows by reflecting the original blue light. M20 is in the constellation of Sagittarius, at a poorly-known distance somewhere between 2200 and 7600 light-years. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13459-m20-trifid-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13459-m20-trifid-nebula.html Fri, 21 Aug 2015 11:53:55 -0400 M20-Trifid Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13458-m20-trifid-nebula.html"><img title="M20-1_Medium_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/M20-1_Medium_.jpg" alt="M20-1_Medium_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Cheman<br /><br />Description}: The Trifid Nebula, M20 or NGC6514, is an excellent example of an emission and reflection nebula.

But this galaxy, known as NGC 6503, has found itself in a lonely position, at the edge of a strangely empty patch of space called the Local Void. The Local Void is a patch of space thought to be about 150 million light-years across that seems to be curiously devoid of galaxies. Astronomers using Hubble discovered that the emptiness of this region has quite an effect on the space around us the Milky Way is being strongly pulled away from it by the gentle but relentless tug of other nearby galaxies. NGC 6503 is only some 18 million light-years away from us in the constellation of Draco (The Dragon), making it one of the closest neighbors from our Local Group.
