Daten vom 24. Juli und 4./5. August 2018
Diese beiden Reflexionsnebel besitzen die gleiche Entfernung, 610 Lichtjahre, wie der 2.15 mag helle Stern Gamma-Cas. Dieser Blaue Riesenstern mit dem 10fachen Sonnendurchmesser, der 19fachen
Masse der Sonne und der 55000fachen Sonnenleuchtkraft bringt diese beiden Reflexionsnebel zum
leuchten. Der Stern und die Nebel sind nur etwa 3 Lichtjahre voneinander entfernt.
Obwohl ich den Blauen Riesen aus dem Gesichtsfeld genommen habe, hat mir dieser noch extrem
in das Bild geleuchtet. Habe Ihn jetzt mal im Bild gelassen und nicht weg retuschiert

Data of 24th July and 4th / 5th August 2018
These two reflection nebulae have the same distance, 610 light-years, like the 2.15 mag bright star Gamma-Cas. This blue giant star with 10 times the sun diameter, 19 times
Mass of the sun and 55000 times the sun's luminosity brings these two reflection nebulae to
to shine. The star and the nebula are only about 3 light-years apart.
Although I have taken the Blue Giant out of the field of vision, this has me still extreme
lit up in the picture. I let him now in the picture and not retouched away
