M16 in SHO Narrowband


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

 

This is an image of M16, also known as the Eagle nebula. It is an emission nebula about 5,700 light years away in the constellation Serpens. M16 actually refers to the open cluster in the center of the image and the Eagle is formed by the surrounding nebula. This nebula contains the Pillars of Creation made famous by the Hubble image of the central portion of this nebula. You can see the Pillars of Creation in the center of this image.

 

Thanks for looking and comments and suggestions welcomed.

Simply spectacular, Bernard.  The saturated colors bring out all the details.  Does the extra elevation of this target from Rio Hurtado improve SNR w.r.t. DSNM?
