Sharpless 156


Dan Crowson
 

Sh2-156 (IC 1470 and others) is a HII region that is part of cluster NGC 7510. It is looked approximately 8,741 light-years away in Cepheus.

 

BFS 17, another HII region and Kronberger 23, an open cluster, is located to the left of Sh2-156.

 

BFS 16 and DG 189 are the HII and reflection nebulae located at the top right of the image.

 

The field is obscured by IFN dust. The thickest clouds are cataloged in the Planck Galactic Cold Clump (PGCC) catalog - https://www.aanda.org/articles/aa/pdf/2016/10/aa25819-15.pdf.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged October 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.

Dan,

 

Nice image. It looks like a tiny Trifid.
