Description

I saw a lot of beautiful images of NGC6914 on Astrobin.
So I decided to try my luck on this colorful region.
And that is my result :-)
I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for watching !

Object description:

NGC 6914 is a complex of emission and reflection clouds nearby to the IC 1318 region. The reflection clouds are catalogued separately as NGC 6914A (vdB131) and NGC 6914B (vdB 32), south and north respectively. The illuminating stars of the nebula belong to the Cygnus OB2 association. This massive grouping of young stars is arguably the most massive and extensive stellar association in the Milky Way. It contains about 2600 OB type spread across 200 light years of space. Its total gaseous mass is estimated to be several hundred thousand solar masses. The stars are mostly obscured by the extensive dust clouds of the Milky Way in that area known as the great rift.
