Description

IC 1795 is an emission nebula located about 6,000 light-years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.
The dominant central star of IC 1795 is a blue dwarf on the main sequence. In addition there are three other stars of class O and B with ages between 3 and 5 million years. This being an age intermediate to the 6 to 20 million years of the shell structure that encloses the complex. The region is one of the sites most studied (besides Orion) for the formation of massive stars. This area is more dense and rich in H II. It is home to, and hides, a group of young blue stars, with their radiation ionizing the residual gas clouds. (WIKI).
