Description

a closeup of IC1396 with Lacerta 10" f/4 and ASI1600MM-cool. Its a LRGB with some NB mixed in, and the full starless Hubble SHO Version with Astronomik 12nm filters. You may like to blink them, so I have added an animation. Further a crop of the elephants trunk head showing details of the little hollow bubble with newborn stars in its center.
