The farthest object visible to the naked eye, it lies 2.5 millions light years away. First mentioned as a small cloud by Abd al-Rahman al-Sufi around 964AD, it was only in 1612 that German astronomer Simon Marius pointed a telescope at it. In 1764 Messier cataloged it as M31. In 1925 Edwin Hubble settled a long debate on the nature of M31 when he discovered a cepheid within it that proved it was a island universe and not part of the Milyk way.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12859-m31-the-great-andromeda-galaxy.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12859-m31-the-great-andromeda-galaxy.html Mon, 29 Sep 2014 05:48:28 -0400 NGC 869/884 Double cluster <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/ngc-catalog/p12858-ngc-869-884-double-cluster.html"><img title="NGC869-doublecluster_final_lrgb_27092014-web.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/769/thumbs/NGC869-doublecluster_final_lrgb_27092014-web.jpg" alt="NGC869-doublecluster_final_lrgb_27092014-web.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: avdhoeven<br /><br />Description}: This image was made on the night of 27 september 2014.

It is only beginning to be hollowed out by the ~100 MY old OC Berkeley 90 powering the emission nebula and located slightly NE of the 5.6 magnitude star below the center of the image (North is up, East is left). The small circular object in the upper right (NW) is Abell 71 (Sh2-116) that was considered a planetary nebula (PK 85+4.1) but, due to lack of OIII, is now considered another very small hydrogen emission nebula. Close examination of it in the image shows two arms. This image was first light with a new Riccardi Focal Reducer for APM that brought a wider field of view for this image and f/4.5 for my setup. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12863-sh2-115-emission-nebula.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12863-sh2-115-emission-nebula.html Sun, 28 Sep 2014 19:31:31 -0400 Sh2-115 Emission Nebula <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p12855-sh2-115-emission-nebula.html"><img title="Sh2-115HaLRGB3crS1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/Sh2-115HaLRGB3crS1.jpg" alt="Sh2-115HaLRGB3crS1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: jeffweiss9<br /><br />Description}: HaLRGB 9.0 hours Sh2-115 is a faint emission nebula in Cygnus at 7500 light years within the larger Cygnus-X starforming region.

This complex, also called Wolf's Cave, spans about 7 light-years and is located about 1,400 light years-away from Earth in the northern constellation of Cepheus. The area in this photo is full of interesting things. Not only do we see a dazzling array of multi-colored stars, but within this single area of space is a hidden an ancient planetary nebula, a reflection nebula, a dark dust cloud, a Bok globule, a peculiar low-mass protostar, the edges of a massive X-ray bubble and the fringes of a supernova remnant.

One of the highlights of the constellation is NGC 7023 - the Iris Nebula. In this image, this beautiful reflection nebula is in the upper left. Throughout the remainder of the astrophoto are numerous bright and dark nebulae. The most prominent of the bright nebulae is the arrow shaped nebula on the right side - LBN 468. To help envision how many different nebulae designations there are in this image, consider that just the dark nebulae embedded within LBN 468 include LDN 1147, 1152, 1155, 1157, and 1158. While the Iris Nebula and LBN 468 steal the show in this image, arguably the most fascinating object in the photo is also one of the smallest. Close inspection of the the tip of the arrow of LBN 468 will reveal an object resembling a comet. This is the Herbig-Haro object known as HH 215 or Gyulbudaghian's Nebula. The nebulae is a high speed jet streaming from the variable protostar, PV Cephei. Much like Hubble's Variable Nebula, Gyulbudaghian's Nebula varies in brightness in shape as the progenitor star brightens and darkens. In this image, North up.
