Description

Tha Pacman nebula is a bright emission nebula and part of an H II region in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia and is part of the Milky Way's Perseus Spiral Arm. This 20×30 arcmin sized nebulosity is also associated with open cluster IC 1590, several Bok globules and the multiple star, B 1 (source wikipedia).

Ok ok enough science.... isn't Pacman a star eater chased by the Ghost of Cassiopea (IC63) ?

Shot under decent skies a while ago and reprocessed now.
Hope you like it!
