Description

Sh2-73 is located in the constellation Hercules and was mistakenly included in the Sharpless catalog as an emission nebula. We now know that the nebula is simply a molecular cloud. With its relatively high galactic latitude, about 45°, the integrated light of the galaxy illuminates the nebula.
This object was taken in two different nights, first night 11x20 minutes light frames and second night 23x10 minutes light frames with Leonardo Ciuffolotti who took his version.
