Molecular cloud in Pegasus
« on: 2016 October 06 01:46:48 »
Hi All,

A molecular cloud, discovered by IRAS satellite in 1984, is a type of interstellar cloud with density and size enough to permit the formation of molecules. This image centered at NGC7497 galaxy in Pegasus, the MBM54 molecular cloud can be seen over a 3.5º square field of view with small galaxies around all field. While NGC7497 galaxy lies at 60 milion light years, the MBM54 is located in the "neighborhood" at only 900ly at high galactic latitudes in the Milky Way.

L:25x300s R:12x300 G:12x300 B:12x300. Processing in PixInsight. Takahashi FSQ-106EDX, EM-200T2M, Apogee U-16m, FS-60CSV+Qhy-5.

Lovely image, Iñaki!  I have some data to process from the same region at longer focal length.

Cheers,
Rick.
