IC_4604_and_IC_4603__The_Rho_Ophiuchi_Nebulae.jpg
The Rho Ophiuchi Nebulae IC 4604 and IC 4603416 viewsOn the border of Scorpius and Ophiuchus by Antares lies a complex region of dust, molecular clouds, and reflection nebula. In the center of this image is the triple star Rho Ophiuchi, which is surrounded by the blue reflection nebula IC 4604. Throughout the image large dust clouds are seen. To the right of IC 4604 is the smaller reflection nebula IC 4603. Image was acquired using a Takahashi Epsilon 180 f/2.8 astrograph and a modified Canon 40D DSLR camera on a Paramount. Images Plus 5.0 was used for calibration and stacking of the sub images. PixInsight 1.8 Ripley was used to process the image. Image was a total of 2 hours 40 minutes exposure (16 x 10 min lights, 13 darks, 64 flats, 64 flat darks).

Horsehead nebula577 viewsThe Horsehead is a dark globule of dust and non-luminous gas, obscuring the light coming from behind, especially the moderately bright nebula IC 434. It is the most remarkable feature of an interesting region of diffuse nebulae, which belongs to a huge cloud of gas and dust situated 1,600 light years away in the direction of constellation Orion. The bright reflection nebula in the lower left is NGC 2023.
