M78


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

This is an image of M78. Actually, M78 is the brightest reflection nebula (blue nebula near the center) of a nebula complex that includes NGC 2064 (the red nebula on the left of the image), NGC 2067 (the reflection nebula just on the other side of the dark nebula from M78) and NGC 2071 (the reflection nebula in the lower right of the image). This nebula complex is about 1,300 light years away in the constellation Orion, slightly above Alnitak, the leftmost star in Orion’s belt.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Bernard,

 

This might be the best close-up image I’ve seen of this one.

Hi Bernard:

Great (really great) resolution and color...those long exposures in RGB paid off.  But it's upside down...😂
Clear skies,
