The bright rim is the surface of the dense cloud that is being illuminated and ionized by a very bright, massive star (HD 206267) that is just to the west of IC 1396A. (In the Figure above, the massive star is just to the left of the edge of the image.) The entire IC 1396 region is ionized by the massive star, except for dense globules that can protect themselves from the star's harsh ultraviolet rays. The Elephant's Trunk nebula is now thought to be a site of star formation, containing several very young (less than 100,000 yr) stars that were discovered in infrared images in 2003. Two older (but still young, a couple of million years, by the standards of stars, which live for billions of years) stars are present in a small, circular cavity in the head of the globule. Winds from these young stars may have emptied the cavity. The combined action of the light from the massive star ionizing and compressing the rim of the cloud, and the wind from the young stars shifting gas from the center outward lead to very high compression in the Elephant's Trunk nebula. This pressure has triggered the current generation of protostars.[2][3]<br /><br />5 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p13897-the-elephant-trunk-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ic-catalog/p13897-the-elephant-trunk-nebula.html Fri, 21 Oct 2016 22:08:14 -0400 NGC7380 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p13896-ngc7380.html"><img title="HHSORGBn7380t01.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/769/thumbs/HHSORGBn7380t01.jpg" alt="HHSORGBn7380t01.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: tjr650<br /><br />Description}: Ha, SII, OIII filters: 1x1 binned 600s exposures R &amp; G filters: 2x2 binned 420s exposures B filter: 2x2 binned 540s exposures http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p13896-ngc7380.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p13896-ngc7380.html Fri, 21 Oct 2016 20:05:17 -0400 NGC7822 Widefield <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/deepsky-imagery-narrowband/p13895-ngc7822-widefield.html"><img title="NGC7822_widefield_03102016_color-v2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/1087/thumbs/NGC7822_widefield_03102016_color-v2.jpg" alt="NGC7822_widefield_03102016_color-v2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: avdhoeven<br /><br />Description}: NGC 7822 is a young star forming complex in the constellation of Cepheus. The complex encompasses the emission region designated Sharpless 171, and the young cluster of stars named Berkeley 59. The complex is believed to be some 800-1000 pc distant, with the younger components aged no more than a few million years. The complex also includes one of the hottest stars discovered within 1 kpc of the Sun, namely BD+66 1673, which is an eclipsing binary system consisting of an O5V that exhibits a surface temperature of nearly 45000 K and a luminosity ~100000 times that of the Sun. The star is one of the primary sources illuminating the nebula and shaping the complex’s famed pillars of creation-type formations, the elephant trunks.

I was attracted to it examining possible CCDNav2 targets for my new FLI ML16200 camera using, for the first time, the Riccardi 0.75x focal reducer/field flattener to get this large FOV. I could find only two other instances of it being imaged on the web: one by the ESA Hershel observatory in the far infrared where this “crack in the sky” was glowing and the other a luminosity image by Werner Mehl where it was completely opaque. This is a 6.7 hour LRGB version of this interesting object that apparently has been rarely imaged. From Phil Plait, Bad Astronomy blog, the LDN 914 dark nebula is a ribbon of cold dust and gas that is about 50 light-years long and has about 800 times the mass of the Sun in total, plenty of raw material to make future stars. It glows in the far infrared emitted by very cold objects, such as clouds undergoing collapse. But in visible light, LDN 914 is black because cold dust is extremely opaque, blocking the light from stars behind it.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13874-ldn-914-quot-crack-in-the-sky-quot.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13874-ldn-914-quot-crack-in-the-sky-quot.html Sun, 02 Oct 2016 21:00:10 -0400 LDN 914 &quot;Crack in the Sky&quot; <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13873-ldn-914-quot-crack-in-the-sky-quot.html"><img title="LDN914LRGB_WTps1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/LDN914LRGB_WTps1.jpg" alt="LDN914LRGB_WTps1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: This is an 2.6 x 2.1 degree image of Lynds Dark Nebula 914 (LDN 914) in Cygnus just below the Pelican.
