NGC 1760 in Bi-Color

Bernard Miller


This is an image of NGC 1760 shot in bi-color with Ha and OIII filters and RGB stars added. This is a large complex of emission nebulae spanning over 1,000 light years connected by glowing filaments. It is about 160,000 light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) in the constellation Dorado. It is one of the most active star forming regions in the nearby universe. The large open cluster NGC 1761 can be seen in the center of the image. This cluster contains some of the hottest and most massive stars in the universe.
